COACH'S QUOTE – "Terry Durham is a man child that plays hard on both ends of the floor. He can do it all and he will fill the stat sheet. Off the court, he is a very nice kid; during the summers, he works with youths ages 5-13 helping with basketball drills and classroom activities."

— Jarelle Redden, Basketball Coach
