Stony Brook adds a post player

Stony Brook men's basketball coach Steve Pikiell announced Wednesday that he has added Anthony Mayo to his roster, starting this coming season.

Mayo -- a 6-foot-9 center/forward from Philadelphia -- averaged 10 points, six rebounds and three blocked shots per game for Roman Catholic High School last season, and was ranked as the No. 84 center in his class in the nation by Scouts, Inc.

"I couldn't be happier to welcome Anthony to the Stony Brook family," Pikiell said in a statement. "He will give us a great inside presence; he is an outstanding rebounder and shot-blocker and can score in the post."

Mayo joins a Stony Brook recruiting class that already includes guard Dave Coley (Brooklyn, N.Y.), guard Anthony Jackson (Columbus, Ohio) and forward Al Rapier (Chicago, Ill.).
