Men’s basketball welcomes transfer forward

Sloan Seymour, a 6-foot 9-inch forward from Albany, N.Y., committed to the men’s basketball program Sunday, according to a tweet.

Seymour spent his freshman season at Siena, where he averaged 9.1 points per game – the third highest average on the team. He is the third transfer and seventh addition to the program under new head coach Jamion Christian, who formerly headed the men’s basketball program at Siena.

He led the squad with 94 made three-pointers and shot at a .373 clip from beyond the arc. He was a fixture in the Saints’ lineup, playing in all 33 games, earning 32 starts and averaging 26.6 minutes of playing time per game.

Per NCAA transfer rules, Seymour needs to wait one year to join the Colonials on the court and will become eligible for the 2020-21 season. Seymour will join a 16-man roster that will see nine returning players from the last campaign.

Senior point guard DJ Williams, sophomore guard Terry Nolan Jr., freshman guard Shandon Brown and freshman forward Marcus Littles announced their intentions to transfer after former head coach Maurice Joseph was removed from the program in March.
