The 2014–2015 St. Francis Brooklyn Terriers men's basketball team represents St. Francis College during the 2014–15 NCAA Division I men's basketball season. The Terrier's home games are played at the Generoso Pope Athletic Complex. The team has been a member of the Northeast Conference since 1981. The team is coached by Glenn Braica, who is in his fifth year at the helm of the St. Francis Terriers. In Braica's previous four seasons the Terriers have made the NEC Tournament.

The program was selected to participate in the 3rd annual 2014 Barclays Center Classic and will face Rutgers, LaSalle and Norfolk State.

Preseason[edit]

The Terriers lost 3 players to graduation; shooting guard Ben Mockford, center Matt Milk, and forward Aleksander Isailovic. The biggest loss being Mockford, who led the team in 3 point shooting and was second in scoring last season. The Terriers also lost 4 players to transfers; Anthony White, P.J. Santavenere, Wayne Martin and Sheldon Hagigal. These four players were suspended last year because of misconduct and their transfers may be related to the event. Martin, Hagigal and White were critical components to last years team.

The Terriers added 7 players to their roster; Keon Williams, Glenn Sanabria, Gunnar Olafson, Chris Hooper, Antonio Jenifer, Jonathan Doss and Tyreek Jewell.

  • Sanabria, a 5'11" freshman from St. Peter's Boys High School on Staten Island averaged 13.6 points per game and led St. Peter’s to the Catholic league semifinals, the furthest a Staten Island team has gone in over a decade, and the school’s first Staten Island High School League crown since 2009.[1]
  • Olafsson, a 6'2" wing has played for SC Keflavik in his native Iceland for the past two seasons.[2] He averaged 8.9 points and 2.8 rebounds this past year under former Terrier assistant coach Andy Johnston.
  • The 6'6" Hooper prepped at Satellite Academy before playing one season at both Kaskaskia College and at Odessa College.[2] Hooper, who averaged 12.3 points and 11.3 rebounds in his senior year at Satellite Academy will have two years of eligibility at St. Francis Brooklyn.
  • Jewell is a 6' 1" wing from the Bronx, New York and has 2 years of eligibility for St. Francis. Jewell previously played for Jamestown Community College and is a 2014 National Junior College Athletic Association Division II Second Team All-American.[3]
  • Doss is a 6’4” wing who will provide the Terriers with another option from behind the arc. Last season, the native of Chicago, Illinois shot 40% from long distance en route to averaging 18 points per game for Eastern Wyoming Community College.
  • The 6’7” Jenifer was an NJCAA All-American at Hagerstown Community College during his sophomore season in 2012-13 after averaging 21 points per game while pulling down eight rebounds and shooting 47% in 33 games played.
  • The 6’4” Williams, who was selected to play in the prestigious Kentucky/Indiana All-Stars boys’ All-Stars contest at Rupp Arena, scored more than 1,000 points in his career at John Hardin High School and finished fourth on the school’s all-time scoring list. He averaged 18.6 points, 7.7 rebounds, 2.4 steals and 1.9 blocks per game last year.

Season outlook[edit]

The Terriers for the first time in the programs history as members of the NEC, they were selected as the preseason 2014-15 NEC favorites by league head coaches.[4] St. Francis Brooklyn claimed six first place votes to finish ahead of Central Connecticut, which earned three first place nods. Braica, now in his fifth year, has stressed defense and rebounding since taking over the program in 2010. Last season, St. Francis Brooklyn led the NEC in scoring defense (66.8) and rebound margin (+3.2/game). They also ranked second in field goal percentage defense (.410), three-point percentage defense (.333) and blocked shots (5.3).[4]
