Four years ago was my first trip to the HoopHall Classic at Springfield College and happened to sit near Sayeed. We connected with each other and I really enjoyed discussing the players with him and enjoyed his sense of humor. We sat together each year after that until this year. I was shocked to hear of Sayeed's passing and had a deep feeling of loss. Living in South Jersey, my only chance of spending time with him was at the annual HoopHall Classic. Sayeed was VERY MUCH missed by many of us who sat in the same area every year. My blessings to his family and those who loved him.
