Henderson and Malvik teamed together in Winona State’s 2005-06 NCAA Division II Championship and in 2006-07 when the team were NCAA DII National Runners. In 2007-08 Henderson played a major role in Winona States second NCAA DII Championship in three years.

Malvik couldn’t speak highly enough of his former teammate in recommended him as the player to take the Cobras forward in 2009. “Quincy is definitely a lock down defender, he can guard anywhere from a 2 guard to a 4 man without much problem, and can play much bigger than his height at 6’5,” said Malvik.

Henderson brings a strong minded defensive presence to the Cobras line up for 2009 while providing a solid scoring option.  He averaged 8.9 points and 4.9 rebounds during his College career and in 2008 was named to the All Conference 2nd team.

Henderson is excited about the prospect of playing professional basketball in Australia in the SEABL. “I am ecstatic about the opportunity to join the Cobras and am looking forward to being part of a winning organisation.  My former teammate Zach Malvik had nothing but good things to say about the team, the Club and the League,” said Henderson.

 “I hope to bring a defensive toughness to the team. I’ve always prided myself on my defence and hope to bring that intensity to the Cobras.”

Coach Grant Wallace has a renewed optimism about 2009 after injuries derailed the Cobras 2008 campaign. With his roster now complete the team will be looking forward to getting on the floor.

“After a thorough and extensive search we believe we have found the ideal player to compliment and complete our roster for 2009.  Quincy is an outstanding lockdown defender, a high energy player and an outstanding team man,” said Wallace.

“Zach Malvik speaks very highly of Quincy and states that without his individual effort and team plays Winona State would not have won their National Championships. We believe Quincy will bring a winning culture and infectious work ethic to the team both in games and at practice,” said Wallace.

Henderson will arrive in Australia in early February along with returning Cobras import Joe Werner.
