"I'm excited. I'm really excited," Gbinije said. "I'm interested in seeing what's going to happen. But overall, I think we're going to have a very good team. I think we're going to make a deeper run in both the ACC and the NCAAs."
"He has got the size and the knowledge and the ability to be a professional point guard," Boeheim said on the podcast. "I think people will see that. I think they saw it during the year and I think they'll see that when they see him one-on-one. He's smart. He's mature beyond his years. He had almost a 4-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio here.
