Marist Scores With Semenov

Matt Brady's program received an injection of international talent this week in the form of Andrey Semenov.

Matt Brady's Marist program secured a key pledge this week in the form of Russian shooter Andrey Semenov. The 6-foot-8 wing out of Dyke (Va.) Blue Ridge Academy is officially on board.

"He's committed verbally to Marist," Blue Ridge coach Bill Ramsey said. "I think it'll be a good fit all the way around. They recruited him hard from the beginning and he likes Coach Brady a great deal. He'll have a lot of success at Marist."

Semenov was a starter for the powerful Boo Williams program where his size and range were on display. Marist worked him over while programs like George Mason and Old Dominion took notice.

"I think his best attribute is his court awareness and knowledge of the game," Ramsey said. "He knows how to play at both ends and he's got a lot of experience and makes good decisions. That's the first thing that stands out when you watch him play and listen to him talk."
