Forbes ready to get new team on the court

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. — It’s certainly been an eventful few weeks of adding and subtracting for ETSU Men’s Basketball Coach, Steve Forbes.

The first year head coach said his team will compete immediately, and he’s trying to make sure of it.

Since three players (Devin Harris, Tommy Williams and Karl Overstreet) left the program, Forbes has added a pair of guys, and he’s brought in six overall since he was announced as coach.

The Bucs will look much different when they take the court for the new season, but that’s kind of the point right now.

One thing’s for sure. Forbes is lining them up and knocking them down just as he wants to be. Now he just needs to get them together on the court.

“In July the majority of our team will be here to give me the chance to really work with them for the first time, to be honest with you. We did a little bit in the spring but really didn’t have a lot of time. I like the way this is going together. We’ve got a couple more things we’ve gotta get done.”

Since coming to Johnson City, Forbes has added Division I transfers Hanner Mosquera-Perea (Indiana) and Ge’Lawn Guyn (Cincinnati), junior college transfers T.J. Cromer, Nigel Holley and Abednego Lufile and high school signee, Shemar Johnson.
