On Episode 35 of the Schmidt Talking Podcast, Alec and Kyle discuss all things St. Bonaventure basketball for the upcoming 2018-2019 season. They bring on a special guest, J.P. Butler of the Olean Times Herald. Butler has been covering the team for over ten years now and has seen the ups and downs of the St. Bonaventure basketball program throughout his tenure.
In this episode, Butler dives into the discussion behind Courtney Stockard’s knee and the fact that he could be missing the first three to five games of the season. Players he discussed who should be stepping up in his absence are LaDarian Griffin, Tshiefu Ngalakulondi, and UNLV transfer Jaylen Poyser.
Butler then goes into discussing why Jalen Poyser will be key to the Bonnies success and be able to score at all three levels. He has big shoes to fill as a guard replacing Matt Mobley, but when Butler spoke to him at Bonaventure Media Day, he seems ready for the challenge.
Another topic of discussion is the freshmen, and at the forefront of that will be Dominick Welsh, who comes into St. Bonaventure as the leading scorer in career points in WNY High School Basketball.
