I actually really like Leighton Elliott-Sewell too. I'm actually not sure we've ever brought in a junior college transfer with double digit rebounding numbers. It'll be interesting to see how that translates to D1.

I like Mo Diallo's game a lot. Juwan White looks a little raw imo.

I think it's going to be small lineup and be Rodriguez, TPP, TSM, Policelli and Gueye. I still think this can be a really solid team. Policelli is a big winner with this roster change. I've always thought he could be a great AE player, but it was going to be hard to give him playing time over olaniyi, garcia and Gueye. He's now definitely a starter and probably getting 25% of possessions when he's on the floor.

EDIT: also everyone should look at how great the Dayton team that Policelli transferred out of was this season. Don't hold his limited production as a freshman against him


I forgot about Hadwe, I think it's:

Rodriguez
TSM
Hadwe
Policelli
Gueye

Who of this group gets us 15 a night? TSM and/or Policelli? And who's the leader?

Guessing TPP, TSM, Policelli, Diallo, Gueye is our starting five. Maybe LES instead of Diallo.

Juco numbers can be so deceptive. For example, White's shooting stats might intrigue you, but Thrower, Long and Almonacy also lit it up from deep at the D-II level. Walker went for 21 and 8 at Barton – pretty ordinary here. Even though it's the AE, I expect it'll be a good-sized jump in competition for these guys.

Have we lost any players to transfer? Are the seniors coming back?

What's crazy is Ford was hired to keep the core of the team together. This is a real bummer, but hope the players find nice landing spots.

EDIT: also a little annoying that the players supposedly campaigned for Ford last spring, and are now leaving en masse. But I don't know the real story, so I should keep my mouth shut.

We may never know the whole story, but Otchere definitely left because of diminished minutes.  Latimer definitely clashed with Ford - could see it every time he was taken out of game.  Latimer also thought he deserved 35 minutes game, despite his major drop-off this past season.  Olaniyi/Garcia/Foreman just sounds like a coordinated effort between them, and/or the domino effect.  Olaniyi is not NBA material (not sure who is feeding him this), but him willing to sit out a year tells me that he thinks there may not be a season upcoming.  With him leaving this may have then triggered Garcia, and then Foreman, to do the same.

I wish them all well, but hope they don't regret what might have been.  None of them are in the same class as Yeboah, so hopefully they can emotionally handle a decrease in minutes (assuming there is a season, of course).  I'm guessing that as of today, season ticket sales won't be going too well.

I do hope it's just that Olaniyi wants to see how he fares at a high major and Garcia and Foreman want to go to the tournament and not a larger locker room problem.

Wishing Heslop luck. For the last couple of years, I thought he would be the first Stony Brook player to get drafted. Still think he can be a good pro.

I actually prefer mid major transfers that have produced at the D1 level to high major transfers that never saw the floor (See Woodhouse, Foreman). Habwe's junior year stats took a step back, but if he were transferring  after is 9pt 5 reb per game sophomore season it would look like a really good pick up. I don't think he'll be an all conference player, but he's going to get on the floor and contribute. We're better today than we were yesterday. That's my view

Interestingly KenPom lists Akwasi's 2017-2018 season as a similar player to Habwe sophomore year as a starter.

Based on coach webers twitter, I assume someone committed last night. Can't figure out who though.

AND woodhouse is on the staff now?!

How behind the times am I that I only just realized Hassan Ceesay is no longer on the roster?

This is just personal conjecture, but my theory is that Boals was way more of a player’s coach than Geno. Just the vibe I get from him not only here, but back at Ohio as well, is that he’s more of a friend than a coach. So I can totally envision how, after starting 17-3, they were all taking it easy.

I think they both have/had players' respect.  No idea on your conjecture, but I think Ford is much more gregarious than Boals, and he's been through the rodeo many times before and knows how to be a head coach, whereas Boals had to learn on the job at SBU.  I like Geno's rotations, play calling and demeanor, and I just don't want SBU to be a launching pad for another coaching jump come the end of this year.

I'm actually not too worried about this. Ford left Kent State for the wrong job at Bradley and stalled his very bright career for five years. I think he's going to be very selective in taking another job. I think we'll have him for awhile.
