Cal State Stanislaus men's basketball coach Larry Reynolds signed the first two athletes joining the program this fall, he announced Friday. Both student-athletes are transfers from area junior college programs.
Reynolds, who is entering his second season as head coach of the Warriors, and assistant coach Ben Riley, will welcome two 6-foot-6 shooting guards, Brett Sayad of Ceres and Evan Scott of Long Beach. Sayad played at Modesto Junior College and Scott was a Columbia College Claim Jumper.
"We are happy to have both of these young men join our program," Reynolds said. "They are similar players and both are very versatile players that can play a number of positions. Both Brett and Evan have the ability to shoot the three and score from different areas on the floor."
Sayad was an all-conference player in the Big 8 at Modesto Junior College, where he averaged 14.4 points, 6.3 rebounds last season. Sayad, a 2008 graduate of Ceres High, made 146 three-pointers in two seasons at MJC.
Scott averaged 13.3 points and 6.7 rebounds at Columbia College last season after spending the 2007-08 season at Cal State Northridge. He attended Millikan High in Long Beach, where he was an all-league honorable mention as a senior.
