"Coach Lonergan, he doesn't want to limit his players," Armwood said. "[His players] can just express everything they can on the court. With this year off, it's just an opportunity to expand my game even more."Armwood said he bonded with the entire Colonials staff. Pete Strickland, a former North Carolina State assistant, tried to recruit Armwood to Raleigh out of high school. Armwood was also familiar with GW assistant Kevin Sutton, who formerly led the Montverde (Fla.) Academy program and competed against Montrose Christian.
