MACK ON MACURA: "J.P. Macura is fearless. He has a confidence on offense that's difficult to instill. He can shoot with anyone in the country. He is a great teammate. He has great length and his IQ for the game is high level. His skill set allows him to make the right play as he can shoot it, pass it and handle the basketball. JP's a gym rat."
