Cambridge, Mass. - Former Stony Brook men's basketball forward Andrew Goba, who played for the Seawolves from 2005-10, has been featured in a video interview as part of the America East Conference's celebration of Black History Month.

Goba is a native of Durban, South Africa, where he played for the South African Junior National Team and was a part of the NBA Africa Top 100 Camp. He came to Stony Brook in 2005 and proceeded to appear in 104 games over five seasons for the Seawolves. He was a member of the program's first-ever America East regular season championship team in 2010.

Goba was strong in the classroom at Stony Brook; he posted a cumulative GPA over 3.0 and was a two-time member of the Stony Brook Dean's List and a three-time America East honor recipient. His highest honor came in 2010 when he was named the America East Men's Basketball Scholar-Athlete and placed on the America East All-Academic team. He graduated from Stony Brook with degrees in Public Health and Nursing.

Fluent in five languages, Goba has served as a mentor and coach for the Playing for Peace program in Washington D.C. and is currently a nurse at Stony Brook Hospital.
