Goodman is the second leading rebounder in the country among all junior colleges. He averaged 17.9 points, 18.5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2.1 steals per game. He also shoots 50% from the field and recorded 26 double-doubles out of 27 games this season. As a freshman during the 2010-2011 season, Goodman grabbed a record 33 rebounds in a single game.
“I chose Southern Wesleyan University for many reasons,” said Goodman. “Southern Wesleyan seems like it has a very faith based campus and I have Christian beliefs. My cousin plays basketball at The Citadel and my other cousin is attending the University of South Carolina to play volleyball in the fall. This allows me to be closer to my family which is very important to me. The fact that we play Loyola in New Orleans is a big advantage because I have a lot of family there, so they can come support me at the games. I feel that SWU has a lot of opportunities for me to grow spiritually in many ways and achieve my lifelong goals.”
Wimphrie admits that Goodman is a rare find. “Recruiting is a nationwide effort to find the best talent out there. When one door closes and another opens. It takes several visits, phone calls and emails to find the right fit. We learned about Seth through the JUCO recruiting journal. One of our major problems last season was the lack of rebounding. I was determined to find the best rebounder in the country. Seth Goodman is a rebounding machine. It is evident by his stats. His family is very supportive of him and proud that he chose a Christian University to continue his education. Seth will make an immediate impact to our program,” finished Wimphrie.
