SBU Men's Basketball / Re: 2019-2020 Scheduling Info?

“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.


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

Wolfie... you think Claxton would be interested in coaching SBU? I would think he is shoe in as next Hofstra coach, when Mihalich moves to a higher paying job.

I have a feeling too it would be an unexpected hire. But yeah.. Jay should be given a look.

Congratulations to Boals, I cant blame a guy for going and doubling his salary and getting his dream job all in one. As many of you have hinted ,I also do think it could of been handled better. But it is what it is. The media got to the players about Coach Boals moving on, before Boals was able to get to them. That’s the part of collegiate athletics that really sucks. Add to the shock value, that they still had a game to play. This is a real bummer for the kids/student athletes. Really sucks for a kid like Makale Foreman who came here because of his personal connection to Thornton and to play for Boals. The staff can bolt but the kid who served his seasonal sit out penalty is handcuffed here and has no choice but to play for a coach that he has no prior relationship with and wasn’t recruited by.
As far as whether the guys are staying or going, I can say everyone is waiting to see who the new coach will be. They all prefer Geno Ford to be the Head coach but that doesn’t look promising. Some of the players even expressed this to the AD (Yeboah being one of them).I don’t think Ford will be hired though.

Was that before the Binghamton game or USF game?

Watched a few games today. Ja Morant was spectacular! He will be drafted top 3, but will his height be an issue in pro level?! B1G went 5-0! Big East teams were weak. Not enough talent. SJU was painful to watch in PIG. We need more teams like Belmont and Wofford in the tournament. Mid-majors with at-large resume. Just a joy to watch them. Will be rooting for fellow SUNY Buffalo tomorrow... their opponent ASU looked good vs SJU.

Anyway we can steal Nathan Davis from Bucknell? I think he is a great coach. Not sure about recruiting. He has a high ceiling. But probably waiting for a high major offer.

I would offer $400k to next coach. And another $400k bonus for each NCAA appearances. $400k bonus is well worth comparing to how much free publicity and fame going to dance brings. Zero bonus for anything else.

Up by 18 at halftime but they were on a 7-0 run. Good time for the break. Regroup and play fast. They aren’t dealing with speed well. They wanna slow the tempo.

Shooting hot
