Other places list him as a PF which makes more sense. Seems a little Garcia for Stony Brook as an undersized PF.

We're also listed as having interest in Arecko Gibson, a guard who attends the same JUCO.

That's the same Junior College where DJ Evans played and now coaches.

Perhaps, Will plans on converting him to a point guard.

This would be the Danes luck, French gets a double-double in each of  his final 3-4 games and looks like a starter for next year and we lose him to grad transfer rule.

Agreed. At the end of that season, I found myself wishing that he had another year at UA because he was really clicking with Cremo. Those last few games, and especially senior night when Travis was out, they had some good two man stuff going

I think Foster was used completely wrong. He was a talented player who was handcuffed in his time here. He was an impact guy on both ends.

Why do we get Grad Transfers that might be good "pieces"  [Hansen, Miller {not even a piece},Foster] but can ever find an impact player? Hartford especially, but vermont, umbc, new hampshire and mass lowell have all gotten major contributors/starters off this program since it's inception?????

Update to comment I made previously:   This year Harford had a 1st & 3rd team GRAD transfer;  Mass Lowell had a 2nd team selection;  and Hartford and New Hampshire each had 1 on the all defensive team. As in previous years, UA ZERO grad transfer impact players. Hansen was a nice piece once he learned the system, but like our previous grad transfers, NOT what you would expect from a 5th year player. IMHO if you are going to give out a one year schollie, he better be able to step in and be MUCH MORE than supporting cast.

I still say if Hansen was given 30 min+ a game there’d be a chance for 3rd team. Obviously others disagreed.

Recruiting. We suck at it. Brown needs to stop being loyal to former players and hire the best men or women for the job. I'm sure Stire, Knotts and Peletier (who isn't a former player IIRC) are great guys...but they seem to be wasted seats on the bench. Even Bassett, who once was credited with the reasons why we shot so well from FT line, has seemed to have lost his step since we suck at the line now. Time to let the man enjoy retirement.

I agree with you. He should have been playing a lot more at least from the start of the AE season.

I dont disagree at all . Oven the last 12+ games or more he should have been playing 30 minutes.  

I know we are working very hard on the trail and you would have to figure that Brown feels the heat. It will be very interesting. It seems we continue to recruit guys with no offers. I'm not saying you cant find a diamond in the ruff but there are over 350 D1 teams. We should be recruiting guys with decent offers attached to them.

Would never happen but this is a giant blow to Bing.

 

Binghamton guard Sam Sessoms has entered the transfer portal, sources told ESPN. Averaged 19.4 PPG, 5.0 RPG and 4.8 APG. Second-team All-America East.

Not surprised.  He sees two more years of bottom dwelling, not surrounded by much and Dempsey as coach.  Problem is he has to sit out a year if going D1 unless that rule gets changed over summer like some have heard is in the works.
