It's not an issue. People just like to complain.

Well it looks like the changed the time to 9am Friday per the bracket? http://www.nysbasketballbrackets.com/2015/15feda.htmland it now says Scotia will play Canisus.

@LauraAmato: Several of the @UAlbany_MBB players will be in the stands for tomorrow's Federation game at SEFCU. Future Dane Joe Cremo & Scotia play at 9."

Assuming he's he only Chima Moneke playing this year, he's played for the Northeast Community College Hawks of Norfolk, NE

Chima-Moneke.jpg

Chima Moneke - 6-7, 220 SO Canberra, Australia Forward

Prep: Chima played in back-to-back Australian high school championships. He averaged a double-double each of the last two seasons. He scored 42 points in one game during his senior year and recorded a 20-rebound game. Chima was listed as one of the top up-and-coming Australian basketball players in the Class of 2013.

College: Chima appeared in 28 games as a freshman, recording 14 starts. Averaged 10.7 points and 7.2 rebounds during his first season as a Hawk. Had a career high 26 points against Indian Hills Community College. Recorded five double-digit rebounding games and had 33 blocks last season.

Major: Health, PE, and Recreation

Parents: Sydney and Eucharia Moneke

 

Averaged 17.2 ppg and 12.0 rpg this year, looks well-built in the team picture here

 

I know UA isn't Harvard, and many times these kids choose an easy major in community college to boost their grades to qualify for a 4 year D1 school - but I am think that major may point to a Syracuse University student than UA.

Is this the same Walker that played for Stony Book? http://www.onebidwonders.com/2014/06/20/ahmad-walker-to-transfer-from-stony-brook/

 

I seem to remember him being promising. The article I posted seems to state him as a defensive guy that needed work on offense. He averaged 20.6ppg, 7.7rpg, and 5.5 apg in community college so maybe he figured the offensive side out. Would be a nice pickup, but if he has 2 years of eligibility left it looks like he would be a 1 year guy really - get 15 minutes per game next year or so like Baker did this year and possibly start is senior year.

 

Don't know much about Cooper beyond his stats at Kaskaskia, and these 2 links:

First a juco link about his athletic ability http://jucoreport.com/dunkage-charles-cooper-kaskaskia-college/

 

and this youtube video of his 'dunk of the year:

:

 

While both players look like nice additions - they are both 6-4 guards. I thought Brown was going to focus on finding big guys? Having so many guards would almost force the team to play a more up tempo run and gun style of play without more bigs. WB seems to be best when he can play the grind style of defense and set plays.

Does this Cooper kid remind anyone of Suero a bit?

Yes, but I think this kid is a more athletic version of him. Also, refreshing to see that most of his highlights are on drives/dunks, and there's a lot of fast break highlights off steals etc. How many dunks does this kid have a season?! Power jams too! On video, he looks like he would be the most athletic person we've ever seen in our program. Being a talent basketball player who can play within a system, be a good teammate, and keep up academically is a different story. All just speculation, but he's a freak.

 

Who knows how well his athleticism would translate to D1 or Albany's offense, but would be fun to watch at least. :D

 

Edit: anyone know number of years of eligibility for these guys?

Walker has 2 years left I believe. For Cooper - the video says he is class of 2017 - so I would guess he has 2 years remaining? http://www.verbalcommits.com/players/charles-cooper

 

Also on http://www.verbalcommits.com/schools/albanyCooper isn't showing yet, but it shows UA has interest from Randall Clarkson a 5-9 guard, and Kyle Benton a 6-7 SF

Another interesting tidbit I noticed on verbalcommits... Cooper has a scholarship offer from Arkansas-Little Rock. Ray Sanders chose Albany over the same school last year.

 

It looks like we may have interest from Elijah Davis, a 6-4 SF from the Bronx.

And played for one of the best NYC h.s. coaches, and on a ridiculously stacked h.s. team. He's coming from a great group of programs.

 

His AAU team was absurdly stacked with talent, both NBA and DI.
