“We are planning on having them both in uniform,” Belbey said.
That, obviously, is tremendous news moving forward.
Leading scorer Demetris Nichols is expected to play on Friday against the Liberty Ballers, but should Boeheim’s Army win, he will miss Saturday’s game due to a prior commitment. The former SU star will be in New Jersey for a wedding. Demetris averaged 26 points over the weekend, and was the best player on the floor in both games.
“Rick is a big help on the boards and scoring on the low block,” Terrence Roberts told CuseNation.com. “Donte, he adds more depth, scoring and length to an already big lineup. Defensively, it’s a big upgrade.”
Boeheim’s Army defeated NYC Superstars on Saturday, 91-73. On Sunday, it took overtime to advance, 92-91, over 20th & Olney.
