This season sees three D1 Nation alumni suiting up for Sam Houston State. The Bearkats beat Texas-Tyler 91-51 to kick off the season.
Junior twins Cameron and Josh Delaney (Harker Heights, TX)and true freshman Bubba Furlong (Midway, TX) will all play a role for Head Coach Jason Hooten. Cam Delaney had 12 points/8 rebounds/5 assists in his 18 minutes of play, while Josh Delaney had 6 points/8 assists in his 18 minutes of play. Big Jesse "Bubba" Furlong (Midway, TX) got his feet wet and in 9 minutes he had 3 rebounds and a block. It's obvious that the 6'9" true freshman will see minutes as they've taken the redshirt off im, right out of the gate.
Nice to see Sophomore Jashire Hardnett (Gulfport, MS) back on the court. The transfer got 25 minutes in the season opener for BYU in their 91-61 win over Mississippi Valley State. He only attempted one shot, but he can score so I'll be watching him closely as the season unfolds.
