Reports: Pitt Adds 6-foot-9 Stony Brook Transfer Mouhamadou Gueye



According to Jeff Goodman, on Monday afternoon, Pitt gained some inside help for John Hugley and co. with the addition of Mouhamadou Gueye, a 6-foot-9, 210-pound forward who recently finished up his senior season at Stony Brook.

Gueye, a Staten Island, New York native, started 16 out of 21 games this season for Stony Brook, averaging 26.5 minutes, 9.7 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 3.1 blocks per game. He shot 43% from the field and 35% from 3-point range, and he also converted 73% of his free-throw attempts on the year.

Gueye’s strong season earned him Third Team All-America East Conference, as well as America East Defensive Player of the Year and All-Defensive Team Honors.

His best game of the season came against UMBC in early February, when he scored a season-high 17 points and knocked down three of his six three-point attempts in 35 minutes of action.

With the addition of Gueye, Pitt’s lineup now has a long, lanky defensive-specialist down low as well as a big, powerful offensive power in John Hugley.

Another player from some 3rd rate or worse conference. Expecting these guys to compete in the ACC… a really big stretch. Playing defense in the America East is a far cry from playing defense against ACC players.
