Geno will have hard time in big games. Unavoidable. His in game coaching decisions do not instill confidence. But he has brought in some good pieces via transfer. There’s more to it than just coaching decisions in high pressure games. But hopefully the talents will translate to success like it did finally with Pikiell.
We did and we can play small ball with 4 guards with Gueye as center. He is already an undersized center, which is the usual in our low major conference. Gueye is America East Defensive Player of Year. I think he is more than cherry on top. Important piece IMO. I really hope he stays.
Stony Brook will start policelli, olananyi, Jenkins, Roberts and Rodriguez.
This may be the best team in sbu history. They don’t have a guy like jameel(who does) or Brenton from a toughness perspective but there are a lot of points on that roster.
The important thing will be to wait until about mid-January to start really evaluating how that’s going. Recall that Hartford didn’t look great right away after Ellison and Carter came in, but by the end of the season, they had made the championship game.
