Little bit of speculation, but some twitter stalking sees that Coach Carm and Coach Turner have recently started following Jaren Sina.  Is he on GW radar?  More importantly are we on his radar.

great stalking - I live for the transfer speculation

2/26/2015 3:08:38 AM - Wax Daddy - 193 posts (#107)

Quick follow-up: How many years does Sina have left? Does leaving mid-year affect whether he gets 2.5 years left or 2, etc.? Can he play immediately next year by leaving early? What's the advantage to leaving before the year ends? Couldn't find it in a couple different articles, thx.

Mention on AWOI board that they are interested too.

2/26/2015 9:21:50 AM - MG'14 - 311 posts (#76)

Do we even have a scholarship for him? Does anyone think someone on the team will transfer at the end of the year. I know who I think will leave (if anyone)

2/26/2015 9:45:11 AM - NewGWFan - 508 posts (#51)

Guessing 2 players leave.  That's the average in the current state of college basketball.

2/26/2015 10:16:19 AM - Mike K - 1,170 posts (#28)

BM, what is the AWOI board?

2/26/2015 10:54:07 AM - Me - 139 posts (#134)

I only think 1 guy would transfer, but I'd say it could go up to 3

2/26/2015 11:06:11 AM - Bo Knows - 705 posts (#37)

My understanding is Sina has used 2 years of eligibility and since he left mid-semester, he would not be available until 2016-17. Not sure what GW's or Sina's interest, if any, is here. Probably depends on what freshmen guards are available to GW for 2016 and whether Sina is a good fit.

2/26/2015 6:19:58 PM - ELJ - 2,207 posts (#14)

BM, I join with Mike K in wondering what the AWOI board is.  Thanks in advance.

2/26/2015 6:34:40 PM - Kaj - 51 posts (#201)

Is he more of a point guard or a two? Interesting to see him in the mix, makes sense since as of right now Griffin would be the only real two on the team for 2016-17.

2/27/2015 10:32:08 AM - BM - 5,674 posts (#3)

Mike K, A school I can't mention because of the horrible memories it brings back. 


 NJ Hoops þ@NJHoops Feb 23
@JarenSina has received a lot of interest since leaving Seton Hall including a few Big 10 and Atlantic 10 schools. No hurry to rush a pick

Play word scramble with AWOI and you'll get the answer

BM, I always thought the UNC-Wilmington comeback exorcised those demons and made it ok to say Iowa again.   You can thank Mike Hall, Carl Ellliot, et al.

As far as I am concerned, It will never be OK to say either I*wa or F**rfield.  And of coure Ge**getown.

I hear Jesse Settles still has a year of eligibility left. 25th year senior

2/28/2015 12:19:18 PM - the sons of liberty - 322 posts (#73)

To be fair (hey oh!), Fairfield is in a great market (NYC/Conn.), and they play in an arena.

Oops.  Other thread.

2/28/2015 12:40:49 PM - SHOFAZ+1 - 71 posts (#181)

we need to expand northeast where our alumni base is from and where the big population centers are. 


if Umass leaves, we should look into adding BU, Vermont, Northeastern, Bucknell, Iona or Manhattan. I could even make an argumnet for adding American. I think that a presence of another DC-area team could only renforce our ratings in DC. 



2/28/2015 1:34:21 PM - ziik - 2,952 posts (#9)

Jess Settles-- DId he come back and play for another Big Ten school as Robbie Hummel? If so, can't we suit up Ty Cavanaugh today, and for the next 4 years, and call him Bill Brigham?

Adam Zagoria ‏@AdamZagoria  5m5 minutes ago

South Carolina, BC, Michigan, Rutgers , GW and Rhody involved for Seton Hall transfer Jaren Sina, per his dad.

3/3/2015 10:28:18 PM - ziik - 2,952 posts (#9)

There you go. Anybody but Rutgers makes a little sense. After all this snow, you'd think GW or SC looks good to a guy from the East

3/3/2015 10:43:59 PM - NewGWFan - 508 posts (#51)

Can't see him ending up at BC. Rutgers or South Carolina.  My guess is it's a three horse race between Michigan, URI, and GW.  I thought Iowa would make the cut.

3/4/2015 10:57:29 AM - Mike K - 1,170 posts (#28)

Mentz, according to reports, he would sit next year and have 2 years of eligibility. He won't play with the core 4.

3/4/2015 1:05:25 PM - Free Quebec - 6,341 posts (#2)

He's got to know that GW is a good opportunity to take over for Joe, and that transfers have done well here (including zeek, Creek, and hopefully Cavanaugh).

3/5/2015 3:50:50 PM - Mike K - 1,170 posts (#28)

South Carolina coach Frank Martin will have a home visit Sunday with Seton Hall transfer @JarenSina , his dad tells @SNYtv

3/5/2015 4:14:16 PM - ziik - 2,952 posts (#9)

an offer he cant refuse...

3/5/2015 4:23:09 PM - CT Colonial - 171 posts (#117)

He'd be the same year as Paul, right? I guess they could put one of those guys at the 2.

3/5/2015 7:55:52 PM - THE CRIMEDOG - 38 posts (#214)

Paul plays more like a 2, despite his size, he's a scorer who hunts for his shot, he's not really a pure point.  Presumably he could become more point oriented, but he seems like a natural, albeit small 2.  Nor would I say he's penned in as a future starter.  Ideally the future point guard is either someone else, or a much improved Paul, certainly possible.  To date, I see him more as an instant offense #2 coming off the bench, for those who accurately bemoan Joe's difficulty in penetrating and creating for others, I think Paul is even less able to, to date at least.

URI Hoops 24/7 ‏@RunninRams3  22h22 hours ago
Seton Hall transfer Jaren Sina (@JarenSina) supposedly took an unofficial visit to URI on Tuesday.

3/20/2015 7:39:46 AM - CPots - 486 posts (#55)

No GW mention (I wasn't that excited anyway)...

"USC basketball coach Frank Martin was in New Jersey Monday for his first in person meeting with former Seton Hall point guard Jaren Sina. It likely won't be the last time the two get together.

"It was great," Sina said. "It was a chance to sit down with him and hear about his program and learn about the school and how I would fit there. I thought we had a great conversation. I learned a lot about the university and his program. Hopefully I'll get on campus. We'll set up an official visit once they've finished (the season)."

Sina mentioned Michigan, Boston College, Davidson and Rhode Island as some other schools of interest. He has not scheduled any official visits because all the schools he's looking at are still playing. But he is going to take an unofficial visit to Rhode Island Tuesday.

Sina said he's still too early in the process to formulate a favorites' list"

3/20/2015 9:02:34 PM - Bigfan - 2,825 posts (#10)

Don't think we need a PG transfer unless immediately eligible.

Did Martin bring a suitcase without clothes with him?

3/23/2015 8:58:05 AM - Chester Would - 166 posts (#118)

"I was surprised Coach Martin already knew so much about me and my family, where they lived and liked to go, their jobs, what cars they drove. He even offered to help them disappear if things ever got difficult with "the press"."

Gw Hoops is coming in strong next year. I heard Mike Jordan is coming.

Jon Rothstein @JonRothstein

Seton Hall transfer Jaren Sina is considering Michigan, Stanford, and BC, source told @CBSSports. Two years of eligibility remaining.

3/24/2015 9:00:22 PM - Tuna Can - 1,661 posts (#19)

We might take one next year, but not now. (show me to be wrong)


3/25/2015 10:56:54 AM - BM - 5,674 posts (#3)

Takes it back.  GW still in the mix.

Seton Hall transfer Jaren Sina will visit George Washington on 4/18, source told @CBSSports. Two years of eligibility remaining.

4/8/2015 11:39:51 AM - The MV - 4,915 posts (#4)

My Seton Hall contact assures me that we would do very well to land Jaren Sina.  He's a great young man, serious about academics, and a solid player.  He got caught in some very dysfunctional crossfires between Sterling Gibbs and Isaiah Whitehead and astutely decided that he wanted no part of this feud.  Rooting very hard that we sign him.

4/8/2015 7:03:43 PM - The Other MG - 68 posts (#184)

If he is that serious about academics, Stanford would be almost impossible to beat (and the weather out here is much better than South Carolina's).  If he wants to stay in the east, I have to believe we are his best overall option (please, God!).

Michigan article.

4/16/2015 9:32:30 AM - Colonial'13 - 94 posts (#159)

We could really really use this guy. A backcourt with PJ, Roland, and Sina will have a potential for a ton of points every game.

any word

4/16/2015 4:44:35 PM - Fan - 223 posts (#101)

get him

4/16/2015 5:25:01 PM - Martiniboy - 235 posts (#97)

Marcquise Reed or Sina? If you had to pick. 

4/16/2015 5:37:47 PM - THE DUDE - 526 posts (#49)

Wonderful insights here Fan. 

Good Q MartiniBoy...Marcquise Reed in a heartbeat.  (That's the precise case I made the other day that brought out the vitriol from a transfer PR policeman)   Adam Smith #1 though, or a comparable immediately eligible scorer,  this team to have the monster year we all hoped for needs an immediately available and would fit perfectly in that #2 guard role we've discussed today.

If we can't land an immediate eligible guy, Sina, Reed, Manu, Stan Robinson from IU, plenty of guys who would upgrade the roster in the future but we now need immdiate help for next year no? 

4/16/2015 5:45:11 PM - The MV - 4,915 posts (#4)

Reed is the more prolific scorer while Sena is the more consummate team player and "glue" guy.  After "The Three Who Stuck It Out" (trademark pending) depart, we may very well be in more need of a Sina than a Reed.

4/16/2015 6:47:56 PM - BM - 5,674 posts (#3)

GW has been off Reed's list for a while.

4/16/2015 10:11:37 PM - thinker - 2,816 posts (#11)

Again, Reed's listed HS is very suspect.

4/16/2015 11:16:34 PM - squid - 1,507 posts (#23)

Suspect in what way? I mean, if he's already been in college for some time the HS is kind of moot, no?

4/16/2015 11:52:41 PM - thinker - 2,816 posts (#11)

Moot for who? I think given our history we have to be careful with kids who went to schools that were not legit high schools. And a big part of the reason why basketball players go to non legit schools is to fix their transcripts and also not have to do much school work making them higher risks to not do well academically.

4/18/2015 6:37:06 PM - Fan - 223 posts (#101)

any word on how the visit went.

It's 9 o clock on Saturday stfu fan. Key the kids live a little bit. 

4/18/2015 11:29:02 PM - squid - 1,507 posts (#23)

Thinker, perhaps, but he's already been in college for a few years and presumably has done well enough to not get kicked off the team. Where have you heard the HS is suspect?

4/19/2015 12:19:40 AM - thinker - 2,816 posts (#11)


I have several HS and AAU coach friends in Maryland. Maryland has a fairly hearty tradition of regular high schools "fixing" the transcripts of good players so they can get into college. If an AAU team has several players that need that they might send them all to the same HS. People in that community all know which schools are doing that. And sometimes groups just set up their own schools to run the players through. Sometimes they get seed money and other support from a shoe company. Under Armour has been very active in Maryland. My friends tell me this particular HS is shady - And I believe them.

Look GW didn't break any rules taking all those players in the Hobbs era who didn't go to real high schools. They wouldn'tbe breaking any rules taking a transfer with a diploma from a phony school. But do we really want to go there?
