Niagara has offered Sam Iorio F 6’7” grad transfer from South Alabama previously attended American University. Hails from Allentown Pa. I don’t know for sure but I think he has two years of eligibility. He played two years at American, sat a year at South Alabama and then played a year, So under COVID rules he can play five over six and as a grad transfer he would not have to sit out a year.

Youtube highlight film shows he has 3 pt. range and can use his left hand inside. Not speedy, but looks strong, sturdy and confident.

In addition to players the progressive teams are recruiting ticket holders:

Earlier this season, Maciariello tied for the fourth fastest coach in MAAC history to reach 30 wins, achieving the mark in just his first 43 games.

Noah Thomason JC Point Guard...

Post by MICKEY »

...has apparently committed to NU. 6’3” 200 out of Butler (KS) Community College , played one year at Houston Baptist. He would be our ninth guard. Earlier in the day Nick McDonald announced he had entered the TransferPortal. his dad is head coach at Daemen so he could be joining his dad. Nine guards begs the question is one of our existing guards leaving?

Good luck to Nick . He’s a good kid who had his moments on the floor for NU.

The Houston Baptist commit seems like a quality signing , but ya another guard. One has to wonder how many other guards will leave . We did sign one big , the transfer from North Alabama .

Thomasson averaged 15 pts per game, 4.5 rebounds and recorded 107 assists at Butler CC during the 2021 season. He shot 46% from the floor and 34% from beyond the arc.

Was always waiting for Nick to light them up for NU but it never happened.

That he is leaving indicates better guards coming in, and if he goes to Daemon he'll be a star.

Seemed like a good kid, wish him well. His dad is a fine guy.
