 +Pre-season report from Head Coach [[ford_travis|Travis Ford]]: "​Stephane,​ I'd say, is one of the best defenders in the nation, bar none. He can really change a game with his defense, he is a difference maker. He is one of the best shot blockers I have ever coached. The general consensus around the Atlantic 10 is that Stephane may be the best pro prospect in the league this year. I hadn't looked at it in that aspect. But I can't 100% disagree. For what he can do and how much he has gotten better this year. He is the number one returning shot blocker in Division 1 this year with Josh Boone from [[opponent_connecticut|UConn]] in the NBA and Shawn James ([[opponent_northeastern|Northeastern]]) sitting out after transferring. Stephane'​s offensive game is coming along. Stephane comes to the gym everyday ready to work, listen and learn and his best days are ahead of him. I think once he realizes how good he could be, the sky is the limit for him."
