  1. He's a mixture between Cheese and Noah Robotham (former PG under Dambrot; prior to LCJ, he was the most basketbally savvy/intelligent guard I've seen in a Zips uni). He has better distributing vision than Cheese, but definitely has Tyler's aggressiveness and quick shot.
  2. Hmmmm... My glass jar for tears was empty after reading this.
  3. Moves well. Needs to bulk a bit and get better at finishing but I love this get.
  4. He's quick! He's slick! He'll knee you in the WHOOP! STEVE SWEICH! STEVE SWEICH! Easily one of the nicest and brightest guys to ever wear a Zips uniform.
  5. Jimond was frustrating at times, but damn did he pour Blue & Gold blood, sweat, and tears on the court for the University.
  6. Verbal Commits 247sports vs. Oak Hill
  7. Not enough apparently. His MAC research time was clearly limited. Must have been looking at his 2017-18 notes. Meanwhile, Akron's Instagram posted on their story a bracket of the top 16 guards in the country. LCJ was on there. Guards win in March, Joe.
  8. Correct It would be nice to land a kid from our own backyard. Missing on Graves has hurt a bit.
  9. That tourney reminds me of the DC Holiday Tourney last season. Solid mid-majors that provide W opportunities.
  10. You would think. I don't think it's a great look as a program.
  11. The loss of a scholarship would be more acceptable than what they got. I'm starting to think the NCAA asked Rob Manfred for his advice on what type of punishment to hand out.
  12. You're getting a great team member in Sayles. He was recruited by our old coach, Keith Dambrot (LeBron's high school coach). During his freshman season, he had an unfortunate wrist injury. A technical was called on either him or another Akron player for supposedly hanging on the rim for too long, and during a later breakaway dunk, Sayles let go of the rim too early with a lot of forward momentum. He did a flip and landed on his wrist; the injury seemingly derailed his career. Dambrot ended up leaving after that year I believe, but Sayles stuck with our new coach (and his staff including Dustin Ford) and the Akron program. His wrist was never quite right, and this past season was the first year he was fully healthy. He showed a lot of promise his freshman year, but we haven't seen TOO much of him until this past season when he fell a bit on the depth chart. I think the speed of the game is the biggest thing he has had to overcome after the injuries, but he's a talent, there's no doubt about that. I don't believe Dustin would make a connection between Geno and Sayles if he didn't believe Sayles could be a contributor for his brother. Sayles sticking with Akron through the coaching and system change (Dambrot and Groce run completely opposite systems and there were quite a few players that ended up leaving Groce's program early on) says a lot about who he is as a person, his mental toughness, etc. The athleticism is there, and if he's given the opportunity, I think he could be quite productive for Stony Brook. Edit: Sayles was recruited by KD but never played for him. KD left before Sayles' freshman year.
  13. My thoughts exactly. Great job by Dustin and the Zips coaching staff for helping Jayden. Classy.
