After several players transferred from Niagara following the departure of Joe Mihalich to Hofstra, first-year coach Chris Casey had to hit the recruiting trail to replenish the roster, and his primary selling point was immediate playing time.
“They’re going to have to play a significant role, maybe more quickly than in a normal situation but that’s fine,” Casey said. “That’s why we recruited them to play.”
Casey has been most pleased with 6-5 freshman forward Ramone Snowden, 6-2 guard Wesley Myers, 6-0 redshirt freshman guard Cameron Fowler, a transfer from Iowa State and 6-8 senior Marcus Ware, who graduated from Monmouth and has one season of eligibility remaining.
“Those guys are a little bit ahead more than others at this point, but they’ve all done a good job and I see them all helping us at points during the year,” Casey said.
