McGrew's Leachville Lions will be moving into a now gymnasium this month — first game there is scheduled for Dec. 18 — and it will end a rather .hectic job which has fallen to McGrew in his first year at Leachville: coaching a basketball team with no ''home" floor.

McGrew comes to Leachville after two years as head coach at Beebe Junior College.
