Former Greyhound switches from Bulldogs to Saints

DULUTH, Minn. – St. Scholastica men’s basketball coach David Staniger added to his roster over break bringing in Duluth East grad and University of Minnesota-Duluth transfer Sean Mayberry (Duluth, Minn./Duluth East HS (Minn.-Duluth)) to add some depth at the guard position.

Mayberry was an honorable mention All-State selection and played on a state finalist team for the Greyhounds. He then went on to play at Minneapolis Community College for two years where he was an all-conference selection and played in the NJCAA National Championship game. Last year, Mayberry red-shirted at UMD.

“Sean gives us a whole new dimension,” Coach Staniger said. “He breaks the defense down and gets the ball into the lane and is a very good on-the-ball defender. He also brings winning experience with him and gives us more depth so we can go up-tempo even more.”

In his first game as a Saint on Tuesday night at Northland, Mayberry scored 10 points in 21 minutes of action. At one point, he scored eight of CSS’s 10 points.

“I came to CSS for a new beginning as far as basketball; before my love of the game was fading away,” Mayberry said. “Since I arrived on campus, I have been pleased with the Saints family and I feel good about being here.”
