I liked Moor's energy, toughness and defensive intensity. Offensively, he was one of those guys who would decide he was going to shoot it 20 feet from the basket, whether it was an open lane or three people standing in front of him. If Ford was going to play up-tempo, I thought that he and Long would fit in nicely, but they have other plans.

I wouldn't read too much into his departure. It happens so often with coaching changes, and there are hundreds and hundreds of players in the transfer portal something like two per D-I school. We're not far from the average. In addition to Gueye, I expect we'll have at least one other juco on the roster this fall.

VC has 566 transfers so far.  There are 351 D1 schools. So two transfers is a little above average.

Vermont lost a 3 star recruit from last year's team.

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.

Again checking Twitter, Moor has recently followed coaches at Arkansas Tech, Southern New Hampshire, Central Washington, Lindenwood, Drury, Northwest Missouri State, and the lone D-I, IUPUI. Many, many D-IIs and jucos have begun following him. I do think he's a D-I talent, but it looks like he's not wanting to sit a year, and I don't blame him.

So why would he leave a D1 school, where I'm sure he'd get more minutes than this past season, unless it's a coaching personality clash?  Or maybe it's his grades?  He's probably only going to get a 1/2 scholarship at best going to a D2 school, right?

Remember he played for a prep school for a year before coming to SBU, so sitting a year also doesn't make a lot of sense.

That comment about the CBI game was interesting... I remember @ Ford's press conference, Heilbron told the players that Ford's coaching would be "a little more tougher than you're used to", perhaps a nod that he knew Boals was a bit too lax on his players.

Im not so sure Boals was too Lax. I will say Ford and Boals are different from each other. Youd expect Ford to be a Tough SOB, hes the son of a coach and at 57 he was a tremendous player in his hey day. 57 dynamic players are typically feisty human beings to begin with. But Ford isnt off the rails and can be seen as cool by players as well. I expect our toughness and pressure we give to go up.

Mahamadou Gueye is a hell of a landing for us. 610 guys with his ball handling skills just dont come to the AE. Kid can create a good shot for himself from anywhere on the floor, add the fact he can space it with the 3 and hes another rim protector.  Geno Ford recruited him himself.

He looks like has a serious, smooth handle and can take it to the rack.  I can live with that.

Not sure if I'm reading too much into tea leaves, but Bryan Weber just sent this text out from Vandalia, OH, which is right near Dayton, who just gave Frankie Policelli his transfer release, who was a big target of ours when he was at LuHi.

You certainly may be right.  Looks like Weber is a recruiting Wunderkid, so obviously his tweet signifies something big.  Policelli would need to sit out 1 year, of course, per transfer rules.

Look at the tweet two hours before the one you cited.  It's from Dayton, OH.  Good spy work!

You guys missed your calling as super sleuth Detectives!   Now if we can somehow bug the SBU Coaches' offices, we'll be ahead of the curve on news!

i know VC isnt the bible- but realistically, we are covered on 4 and 5.  garcia (flex 4?) and ola can run 3.

we have a 2 in latimer (backup?).  TSM is listed at 2 (accurate?).  ceesay and foreman are listed at 1. 

policelli is listed at 3 but perhaps is a big in the AE?  swing?

what do we think, where are the gaps?

If Ford runs the same system, which I viewed as a 1-3-1: a PG, three wings and a Big.  Otchere is the Big and I suspect Foreman (maybe Ceesay?) is the PG.  A great PG would accelerate this offense.  You always need wings in this system so Policelli could slide in to one of the three slots or come off the bench, depending on need and performance. 

Others here are more knowledgeable than me so they may have better answers.
