RUTHERFORD, N.J. – College freshman Sean Delaney (Stormville, N.Y./Kennedy Catholic) has transferred to Felician University and signed an athletics financial aid agreement for men's basketball, Felician head men's coach Ivan Lewis announced today.
Delaney, a 6-foot-4 guard, comes to Felician after one semester at New York Institute of Technology. He spent the 2015-16 season as a postgraduate student at Putnam (Conn.) Science Academy, helping the Mustangs to the national semifinals. He will have four years of eligibility for Felician beginning with the 2017-18 campaign.
"Sean has the type of character that we want to bring to our team," Lewis said. "On the court, he will help us at both ends of the floor with his ability to shoot and his size."
Delaney is a 2015 graduate of Kennedy Catholic of Somers, N.Y. A two-time Catholic High School Athletic Assocation 'A' all-New York City selection, he led the Gaels to a 26-2 record, a city championship and a state runner-up finish in his senior season.
Felician is a member of NCAA Division II and competes in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference. The Golden Falcons posted a 10-17 won-lost record in 2016-17, and finished sixth in the CACC North Division with a 7-12 league mark.
