Pre-season report from Head Coach 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 UConn in the NBA and Shawn James (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.”
