Oakville, ON native Coleman Stucke recently announced his commitment to play next season at Northeastern University in Boston, MA.
Stucke is a 6-foot-7 guard/forward who plays for Orangeville Prep in the OSBA in Canada and the Grind Session is the US. Northeastern is getting an elite shooter from range with exceptional ball-handling ability and a very high basketball (and classroom) IQ. His game has similarities to Mike Miller the former Florida Gator and two-time NBA champion with the Miami Heat.
Stucke and his teammate Alex Nwagha transferred to Orangeville this season in search of more scholarship opportunities after spending the past few years playing for Kings Christian in Oakville where they were teammates with current Harvard guard Luka Sakota. Nwagha has just committed to play next year at James Madison University while Stucke will be headed to Northeastern to play under Bill Coen who is in his 13th season at the helm of the Huskies.
Stucke will join fellow Canadian Maxime Boursiquot (Ottawa) next season at a Northeastern squad that made it to the NCAA tournament last year after winning the Colonial Athletic Association. The Huskies entered March Madness as a No.13 seed where they lost in the first round to the heavily favoured Kansas Jayhawks.
The Huskies are currently 5-5 early into the 2019-20 season.
