The "gets to play" part is the question.
Guessing he'll at the very least see some time toward the end of games that are well in hand.

I mean, he'll be there at practices, I assume. Even team mangers get to pass the ball to the players and rebound in practices.

SBU picked up a pretty good transfer from Kent State, Anthony Roberts. A 6'4 guard with 2 years to play.

This one surprised me, although if the new transfer rule passes nothing will surprise me.

VCU's Marcus Santos-Silva will transfer, per his Instagram page. Significant Atlantic 10 news. Averaged 12.8 PPG and 8.9 RPG.

Saint Louis got themselves a really nice transfer pick up in Francis Okoro - excited to see his matchup against Tre Mitchell.

There’s been a couple of really nice A-10 transfer pickups this offseason, who do you think will make the most impact next season?

We'll see. If they lose that first game it might just be a H series.

Lifelong fan of the ‘Cuse here, I’m interested to see how he does at URI but he has a ton of developing to do before he scares me in the A10. Out of control and has no jumper.

not sure it belongs in this thread, but here's yesterday's tweet of interest:

Armored Athlete
@ArmoredAthlete
Y’all thought we were done? Former @UMassBasketball and San Antonio Spurs draft pick Cady Lalanne was 2nd in PPG and RPG in the KBL this season. This summer he’s bringing his talents to Armored Athlete in @thetournament #GoodLuckWithThat

He picks SLU as this year's Dayton or San Diego State; a non P5 team with a chance for a #1 seed. All I can say is that we matched up with them pretty well last year.

Ya, SLU doesn't scare me. They'll be good, but they don't scare me.

We shit the bed against teams with more complex offenses last year - Davidson, Richmond, GW, SBU... Coach B mentioned something about this is an interview I heard a few months ago. When asked how he'd plan to defend these offenses, he said something along the line of 'we won't. We'll overwhelm them with OUR 40 minutes of basketball.' i.e. press

I really can't wait to watch this group
