Re: Around the League

Any of our A-10 brethren have thoughts on Koureissi? Picked up a bunch of A-10 offers over the summer, but his recruiting has been kind of quiet this fall. We got involved a few weeks ago, got him down right away for a visit, and he committed tonight.

We only have one slot for 2018, so hopefully we made it count. Good list of offers...maybe a bit of a project, but recruiting folks seem to think great upside.

Someone should have something to say. It appears that he was weighing offers from St Bona, Rhody, UMass, Duquesne & GW.

Re: Around the League

Based on his name, and the fact that he wanted good academics, the Spiders were a no-brainer.

Souleymane is a name of Arabic origin.

The name Souleymane has its origins in dialect Arabic Slimane or standard Arabic Salomon, meaning "healthy, intact, safe". In other Arabic dialects, it also means "the one who bites".

Re: Around the League

I was not aware of the Bona staff's involvement with Souleymane, but that certainly doesn't mean there wasn't a relationship. He seems like a classic A10 kid who has a projectable body/skill set, but needs physical development. His game sounds perfect for Mooney's system at UR.

SBU will have one of its main targets on campus this weekend. Keshaun Saunders, a 6'4" SG out of the Toronto area, is a solid scorer who can create his own shot in half court sets.

Re: Around the League

I just looked at the AP Top 25. Rhody and Dayton were both in the "others receiving votes" category.

Others receiving votes: Alabama 86, Virginia 57, Rhode Island 49, TCU 46, Providence 34, Missouri 19, Virginia Tech 16, Wisconsin 14, Butler 13, Texas 10, Maryland 7, Oklahoma 7, Nevada 7, Michigan 6, Dayton 5, Middle Tennessee 4, Ball State 4, SMU 3, Oakland 2, Oregon 2, South Carolina 1, Harvard 1, UCF 1.


Big E needs to take Bona and SJU's blue bubbles and give one to Dayton.

I am not sure how Dayton is getting top 25 votes unless they are voting based on the past.

Yep, but the thing is that once you are on the outside of the honorable mentions it takes quite a bit of time and winning to get in.

Re: Around the League

I think Bona has an unfair advantage in recruiting Canadian kids. Probably due to its Himalayan location.
The NCAA should look into that.
