Curry did shoot 37% from 3 in two years at Pensacola State. He was ranked 45th in the JUCO ranks his second year. He definitely can get off the ground based on the JUCO highlight video I Sawkins’s. Glad to have him.

Nice get! Physical kid, will help us up front. Gives us insurance so we don't need Tate for semester one and don't have to rely too much on Golson from the jump (especially with potential for no summer class on campus to get Golson integrated). Looks like he had good mid-major interest. Nice one for our staff! Those shooting numbers make me think being the roll man for Pickett will be good for him.
I assume this is the Simon-Michigan connection. I like what he has brought to our staff. Albany wanted him too
Simon has always had a great eye for talent, primarily responsible for getting both Kris Dunn and Ben Bentil to Providence. I've said it before and I'll say it again, he was a massive steal for Carm and Siena
This was exactly what was needed to complete the roster. A 6'8, 230 big man with good proven D1 stats to pair with Young at the 5. I hope whatever injury held him out for all of last season is fully healed. We need minutes out of this dude.
So I guess that's it for Knox then. That's too bad, he was an intriguing prospect. I guess that's what happens when you sit on scholarship offers too long.
He shot 48-73 at the rim (66%) He scored double figures in 8 of the 19 games he played He had at least 5 rebounds in 8 of the 19 games he played
He shot just 7-39 (18%) on long twos, 2-20 from three (10%), and 67% free throws.
Keep him from shooting jump shots, and hope he plays through contact and finishes by making the basket for the potential 3 point play when fouled. Jalen Pickett will handle the rest helping to elevate his game.
So guess we replaced old Sammy with a new Sammy who wants to be Steph Curry. Looks like a fine depth guy for next year that could thrive in the Pickett and Roll, still don't get why we didn't just bring Sammy back if he was really interested but oh well, hopefully this works out better.
