  1. 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.
  2. Jimond was frustrating at times, but damn did he pour Blue & Gold blood, sweat, and tears on the court for the University.
  3. Verbal Commits 247sports vs. Oak Hill
  4. 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.
  5. Correct It would be nice to land a kid from our own backyard. Missing on Graves has hurt a bit.
  6. That tourney reminds me of the DC Holiday Tourney last season. Solid mid-majors that provide W opportunities.
  7. You would think. I don't think it's a great look as a program.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. My thoughts exactly. Great job by Dustin and the Zips coaching staff for helping Jayden. Classy.
  11. What does the one-year probation consist of? If it's not a postseason ban, this is a pretty pointless punishment considering they get to keep one of their best players.
  12. In case you need a good laugh during quarantine, here you go.
  13. Groce's tallest contributors on his Sweet Sixteen Ohio team were Baltic & Keely at 6'8". Meanwhile we had Zeke. Big guys are luxuries, not necessities. However, I'd really like someone in the 6'10" range.
  14. I don't know if the usual timetable applies to the game we're in currently. The NCAA shut down recruiting for COVID-19. I actually think coming out of The Rona with 2 open schollies is ideal and could set us up perfectly to be an attractive landing spot when stuff opens back up.
  15. What a novel idea. Really. Truly innovative. I don't think any conference has done this yet. This will transcend the landscape of college basketball forever.
  16. Can't exactly be great for team chemistry, coming off a year where the team choked away the regular season title, when the star player enters the transfer portal and comes back. I wonder if the Rona recruiting ban is the reason for his return.
  17. Wait, we could go undefeated?! HANG THE NATIONAL CHAMPS BANNER!
  18. Amazing. If this is accurate, the ability to add 2 more players to this squad would be incredibly beneficial. I feel like the 11 we have currently could win the MAC again, but to add anyone to that would be a massive bonus.
  19. I still don't think I've gotten an answer on this. Do we have a scholarship left to offer anyone?
  20. What was the competition like that he was posting up against? Same size guys or bigger than him?
