Ditto. Thanks for the updates. Looking forward to you game previews.

There’s a reason Policelli couldn’t crack the rotation at Dayton and transferred. But I will be optimistic and may be  what Oldseawolf said is true and that he is feeling down due to pending denial. He does have Div 1 b-ball body and height. May be didn’t put in the effort and work at Dayton. Hope he learnt from that.

Good to hear about Makale playing well. I have been hearing in this board, I think it was from greatK, that he was the best PG in practice last year. So can’t wait to see him on the floor this year

Heilbron is a cheerleader through and through. Visionary, ambassador, supporter, all fantastic. But evaluator of talent? I dunno about that.

Unfortunately, when you lay it on that thick, it's more difficult to believe. TPP and TSM are HIGH-major guys all of a sudden? Akwasi, who starred here and would be in the discussion to have his number retired if he stayed, just transferred to Rutgers. Rotational guys Moor and Long just transferred to Texas State and Southern New Hampshire. So you're telling me that these incoming players went completely under the radar and should be playing P5 basketball? What did he tell us about Moor and Long?

Hey, I hope he's right, but ... have you seen Vermont's roster?

Well said. But you have to give Helibron credit. He is the most positive person I think I have ever spoken to. He definitely knows how to rally his troops. But, I still se SB finishing 500 this season.

We'll have some serious competition in the AE this year, but this is better than a .500 team. I expect 20 wins and a 2nd or 3rd place finish in the AE. He's a cheerleader for the team, but at the same time we're basically getting four starters back from a 24 win team last year. No reason to be a pessimist.

Quite frankly. I dont think 500 is a pessimist at all. This is a rebuilding team from top to bottom. From an entirely new coaching staff, players and heck! Even a new president. Going 500 for year 1 of a new team is expectable, respectable and plausible.

I don’t see how this is a rebuilding team “top to bottom” when 9 players are returning players. Again I don’t see how is this “entirely new” coaching staff when the Head coach and assistant Head coach has been with us since 2016 albeit in different roles. The AD specifically chose continuity over top to bottom rebuild.

No doubt Vermont will again be the cream of the crop this year but I fully expect us to give them a run for money.

As coach Weber says “Gotta cast a big net to get a few higher level kids”

While OOC schedule is excellent, home schedule is so poor. Couldn’t even find some NEC teams, or NJIT or other low major tristate team to visit? I wouldn’t mind home and home.

Conference and Athletics / Re: UConn to join the Big East in 2020
« on: June 28, 2019, 08:48:16 am »
I was reading some of the chatter on Twitter that besides basketball prestige of Big East and travel savings, another reason UConn not worrying too much about leaving AAC is that SNY will most likely give 1.5~2m to broadcast their home football games! It made me think... why are we, the Seawolves fb, stuck with bad CAA tv deals? I like CAA but hate the TV deals. I Know we won’t make money and it’s not about money.  Is it possible to  play in CAA but have our football broadcast independence? May be have our home games on SNY for free! SNY needs live sports for fall. Providing our home games for free would provide invaluable exposure.

UConn would most likely go independent in football following UMass example. Bad example should I say? May be UConn and UMass downgrade to FCS and join CAA... lol

I, too, don’t think there was a religious angle to it. Otherwise the so called Catholic 7s wouldn’t invite Butler which is a non-religious institution. The goal was to recruit basketball only schools with dedication to that sport only... therefore added Butler, Xavier and Creighton. Now added UConn who eventually realized what’s important and priority to them.

This is a smart move from UConn. They are a bball school and finally recognized it. Bball program was going down trying to chase football money. Good for them. Hopefully they will be relevant again.

I don’t think it will have a trickledown effect. Big East will be happy with 11 teams, 20 game schedule. AAC will find a much better football school that will contribute unlike UConn football.

“Schedule is coming together for @StonyBrookMBB although many area teams refusing to schedule home-and-home. So many teams within driving distance of us that all struggle to get home games and we’re willing to play any of them.”

It seems consensus is Moor had decision making issues and took questionable shots.. but lets not forget he had the best sharpshooting percentage.. 3PT% of 0.417 (10 of 24 attempted for the season.. albeit very low number of attempts).

I really hope we can find a good PG in the via transfer or Juco. If no more departure, I feel good about going forward to next season with the solid core we already have.

Besides usual Hofstra, not sure how the schedule will look. Hope we schedule Fairfield and Jay Young. May be couple of local mid majors.. Columbia, LIU, Manhattan etc. Big East teams look ripe for taking. We can beat GT, SJU etc if scheduled. A10 is also in a weak cycle. Besides VCU, all others look weak from previous years. Also hope we can get an invite to MSG holiday festivals.

Happy for Jay Young. Finally gets a chance. Fairfield is a good place. Committed to win.

SBU just received a verbal commitment from Mouhamadou Gueye.  He's a 6'10" JUCO transfer out of Monroe College with 2 years to play with the Seawolves.  He seems to be in the vein of Otchere, but somewhat more offensively skilled.   This one caught me by surprise, as I thought for sure we'd target a PG, of which there were several quality offers out.

gueye&&view=detail&mid=B06678FC57B7CB121A11B06678FC57B7CB121A11&&FORM=VRDGARveral

I, too, thought PG will be a priority. But Gueye looks like a good talent. As others mentioned, we’ve got some length now... athletic too.

Per VC we still have one more roster spot left for 2019.. is that correct? Perhaps that spot for a PG.

FYI despite coaching change, Tyler Stephenson-Moore remains committed
