You can now add Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU) to our schedule. In what could be labeled a “RPI Killer” (3-26 last year / 328 KenPom), the Knights, based out of Teaneck (NJ), will visit Stabler on December 1st. Many no doubt hope this concludes what would be a two-game series . Lehigh won the inaugural game last season 72-61.
Word has it that FDU added 5 newcomers to this year’s roster, including two who may make some noise in the backcourt: Sekou Harris and Sidney Sanders. With Harris at the helm, Plainfield High School won four consecutive New Jersey sectional championships and two straight Group Three state titles. Harris averaged 19 points in his final three games with Plainfield, including the Tournament of Champions final. Sanders, on the other hand, was named First Team All-State in South Carolina, while being named the Class 2A South Carolina Player of the Year.
