Tyler Stephenson Moore has confirmed on twitter that he's still coming to Stony Brook.

I bet the coaching staff see Gueye as a wing (think Junior Saintel) rather than a big. I think Boals's philosophy was to play 1 pg, 3 wings, and 1 big. I think in that scheme both Corry Long and Gueye are wings. The bigs on the team are still Otchere, Christie, and Ochefu.

i think theyre 1 year contracts in all sports

with that said- most have an implicit understanding that it's a mutual commitment

Correct, athletically they're all one year deals. Whether or not the university chooses to give a cut player an academic scholarship for the remainder of their undergraduate career is up to them. As far as I understand most do not, although for a revenue sport like basketball it could be different.

Just was browing VC and saw that Mouhamadou Gueye committed to SBU. Staten Island native, JuCo at Monroe College.

6'10, 205 lbs. Looks tall but lanky- can never have too many big guys. If you hit on one of them you're in good shape.

Monroe is one of the best JUCO's in the Northeast every single year.  They have good players.  I like this pickup.

He averages about 10 points and 25 minutes a game and is a good defender. Sorta reminds me of Ochere, except he can score points.. Lets see how he performs against better competition. He will attempt to shoot from the perimeter and occasionally makes a three.

Frankie Policelli, who had us on his radar out of high school, has entered the transfer portal. He played marginal minutes at Dayton this year. It's worth noting that he played high school ball alongside SBU commit Tyler Stephenson-Moore. I didn't love Policelli's game based on the limited video that I watched, but others who know a lot more than I do did.

This is getting a little worrisome, and at the same time could be interesting:

In addition to Corry Long, Jules moor has announced he's transferring.

Certainly not good news.  I noticed during the USF playoff game, that Geno pulled Moor out of the game for a questionable play that Moor made (forget the exact play), and Geno talked to him on bench, and Moor totally ignored him.  I sensed poor body language at that moment on the part of Moor.  He's very athletic, a solid defender, but was given too much latitude for taking outside shots, IMO.  I don't think he's a big time player, so not sure what sitting a year out will do for him in the long-term.  Nonetheless, this is a much more serious loss than Long, and hope that this doesn't push Akwasi out the door.

Also, wasn't he recruited by the coach that went with Boals to OU, and not Weber?

How old a Seawolf am I? I followed them during their Final 4 DIII hoops run in 1977-78 (they were called the Patriots then)

Wow! This Basketball team is in a total rebuilding mode. Not looking good for years to come if you ask me.

you could look at it that way, or you could look at it like this- after an arguably good season, this team lost to a perennial doormat in the tournament at home.

We'll see. You may be right, but Long wasn't exactly lighting it up after two years.  Moor was better than I expected but he didn't set the world on fire either.  They're the type of players who can be replaced.  Yeboah OTOH . . . .

Moore was a good defender poor shot taker. I can remember many times questioning his shot taking decisions (I know he is a freshman). Good luck to him, not a big loss hopefully we can get a good point guard now.

It's a bummer to lose both Long and Moor. Losing one or the other doesn't really bother me as they seem kind of interchangeable, but both is tough. This opens up a big opportunity for Hassan Ceesay or Tyler Stephenson Moore next year. We didn't get to see much of Ceesay. He's only two years removed from a patella tendon tear at the end of his junior year in high school. Still think he's pretty intriguing. I suspect Tyler Stephenson Moore is going to look a lot like Long/Moor but with more consisten 3pt shooting.

I guess what I'm saying is, this team has plenty of wings. Hopefully these transfers won't hurt too much.

I know Foreman is reported to be very good, and based upon what's been said to date about him, I'm really looking forward to seeing him take over the PG position next season.  That said, even though I'm not as negative as some about McKenzie, he's clearly not the quick, slashing guard that fits with faster style of play that Coach Ford alluded to at the press conference--and I truly believe that having a second high caliber PG would be extremely beneficial

There are now two open slots for next year (hoping that Yeboah doesn't make it three).  The Seawolves have offers out for several excellent PGs.  So, I'm hoping they can nab at least one of them!!

Moor played some good minutes when we had him in. Losing him now may indicate something brewing there in the locker room? Butting heads with Ford? In any case he's a player I'd have loved to hang on to.
