Re: Looking ahead for 2017-18

If Dingba is as good of rebounder and defensive player as I've heard I think he could be a starter. That would allow Lamb and Henson to get outside more often and we still have Drew U off the bench.

TBH
Duncan
Henson at the 3?
Lamb
Dingba

Cam
Drew
Hearlihy
Everett
Rohrer

Shungu? He's athletic with a good jumper I think he could be in the mix a little
Kian? I have no idea where he's at in his development

Patella?
Smith? Would make sense to redshirt.

If we signed Nash could he start in a 3 guard lineup?

I expect practice to be competitive like it was this year.

Re: Looking ahead for 2017-18

I'm interested to see how Stony Brook does next season. Boals did IMO an amazing job with SBU in 2016-17 finishing second with a roster that at least down the stretch seemed to be offensively challenged/not a lot of threats outside of Woodhouse.

I think it's fair to say Pikiell's recruiting after the Warney/Puriefoy class was pretty not good overall. Woodhouse was obviously a great local transfer addition, and played out of his mind last year- but it's not like Boals was left a big cupboard.

Will be interesting to see what Boals has coming in to add to Yeboah and Iroegbu, who were both pretty promising.

I'm really curious as well, I understand there are some OK freshmen coming in but as for tried and true players after Woodhouse, it's rough.

Will be very interesting tos ee what Boals comes up with, if he is again near the top of the league that will be pretty telling.

Re: Looking ahead for 2017-18

Another promising freshmen for Stonybrook is Ochefu. I think Boals has recruited very well for his first class. I wish more posters would give us the status of their teams for next season. Graduates, projected starters, and freshmen.

Re: Looking ahead for 2017-18

Our biggest issue will be an effective playmaker post Woodhouse. Either Almonacy has to step up or one of the two incoming PGs Corey Long and McKenzie has to be ready to play significant productive minutes as Freashman starter.

Second big issue is the same problem we had this whole year... Interior presence and post scoring. Sturdivant showed some flashed early but then was missing in action towards the end part of the season when he was most needed. Either he or freshman Ochefu, highly rated for a mid-major, will have to be the solution.

I am not too worried about wing play and defense.

I think we have the potential to be in the top of the standing anywhere between seeds 2 to 4. Anything less than 4 will be a disappointment and won't be a progress from this years excellent work.

Re: Looking ahead for 2017-18

I know this is basically what is Vermont going to do in 2017-18, but I think UNH is an interesting case. Do they fall back next year or the year after?

They return Tanner Leissner and Iba Camara, and add Jacoby Armstrong as part of the big rotation. That's a fantastic threesome in the AE. They missed Jacoby desperately this year when they had to give minutes to either Watkins or Rosinski. I'd guess you'll have those three split 80 minutes at the big spots next year.

Darryl Stewart is also now eligible as Juco Transfer Junior -- probably is going to be our #1 option on offense with Leissner from what I've seen. He'll likely start at the 3. John Ogwuche broke out in the final few games of the season and is likely another starter at guard. Jordan Reed started all of last year, but probably shouldn't be starting games at this level.

The real question for UNH is what they have after those 6 guys: Stewart (presumed scorer, perhaps better than Ronell Jordan), Leissner, Camara, Armstrong, Ogwuche, Reed (best as a backup, 10-15 PG).

Kijana Love, Luke Rosinski and David Watkins all played last year, but none were particularly great. Love has a really good shot and can get his own basket, but needs to get stronger. Rosinski is huge, but lacks polish and projects at best as a backup 5. Watkins just looks like a lost tweener out there.

UNH has three freshman coming in and 1 scholarship left (PG, SF, SF/PF) but I'm not sure any are projected to come in right away. To me, they need a JuCO PG DESPERATELY to push Reed off that starting PG spot. I don't know if Love or Jordan (the incoming freshman) are ready to do that, and they need someone who can. Given the rest of the roster, a graduate transfer would be absolutely welcome.

$BU loses arguably their best returning player, that's not going to bode well for next season!

Now I am worried about the wing play. Gonna miss him. Nyama is a role model Student Athlete.

Re: Looking ahead for 2017-18

The Nyama loss is big. Not a great shooter but had some serious size and athleticism at the wing. SBU now losses its two best players in my opinion. Those freshmen better be real good if SBU wants to compete.

Re: Looking ahead for 2017-18

I think the returning front court has UNH back in the top 4 next year. After Vermont, that is the best front court in the conference. They will need to find some sort of outside shooting though. Smith and Dion will be hard to replace on the perimeter.

It's super strange; would be senior on a team that finished second in conference and get to take grad courses for free while playing NCAA D1 basketball.

I don't know, you're talking about someone from Germany who doesn't have the adjustment most other guys have when it comes to leaving the country to play overseas. Coach that brought him in is gone, almost everyone he came up with in the program is gone. More I thought about it the less it made sense for him to stay.
