Tuesday was a day head coach Mitch Buonaguro might be able to point to in a few years and say that was a great day. The Saints made it official with the signing of two well regarded players including the supposed top recruit in the Capital Region.

Big man (6-7, 210 lbs) Javion Ogunyemi, called the top recruit in the region confirmed he will play at Siena. Ogunyemi hails from Troy. Also making it official is Forestville, Maryland native Stephan Jiggets signed his letter of intent. Jiggets is 6-1, 205 lbs and can play either guard position. He led his high school team, Bishop McNamara, a big time hoops program in scoring and in doing so earned second team All Washington Catholic Athletic Conference.

Ogunyemi is the big prize. He earned the Times Union all area first team selection with his all around game averaging 12.2 points per game, a solid 9.6 rebounds, and 2.3 block shots per game. The signings left Buonaguro a happy man.

On Ogunyemi the coach said this “Javion is an outstanding big man who can play away from the basket, and can score. He plays on a very good high school team with an excellent coach. I am really excited about his ability to come in and contribute in the front court.”

On his newest guard Jiggets, Buonaguro gushed even more.

“Stephan adds a tremendous of versatility to our back court. We really like his ability to score but he can also run a team. He is from a very strong program, so we are really excited about getting him.”

So far this year the Saints are 2-3 after a recent tournament in San Diego.
