As the upcoming APBL season approaches, we will begin to highlight the Manhattan Pride roster, one player at a time.
Today's highlighted player is Nate Young, a 6'6" guard/forward from Brooklyn. Young played his collegiate basketball at New York City College of Technology, before playing at Baruch College during the 2011-12 season. He averaged 23.6 points and 7.0 rebounds per game at City College and then 15.7 points and 7.1 rebounds per game at Baruch College before joining the Pride during the ACPBL Summer League. During the summer league with the Manhattan Pride, Young averaged 34 points and 11 rebounds per game, was second in the voting for MVP, and received First Team All-ACPBL Summer League honors.
Where and for what teams have you played for throughout you professional career?
This is the first professional team that I have played for, so technically I guess you can say this is my "rookie" year as a pro.
How long have you been with the Manhattan Pride and what is your role with the team?
Ive been with Manhattan Pride since the summer league. As far as my role on the team, I feel that I can be whatever my team needs me to be. I like to try to be a do-it-all type player, whether it's scoring, rebounding, defense, or even simple stuff like setting screens - whatever helps my team win.
What do you hope to accomplish as a member of the Manhattan Pride this season? And, where to you ultimately hope to advance to next in your basketball career?
As a member of the Manhattan Pride I hope to help bring this team to an elite level of basketball. I want other teams to know that they are going to have a tough night every time they play us. Overall, I just want the team the play at a championship level every game. Personally, I want to continue my career professionally overseas for a few years.
Have you thought about life after playing professional basketball? If so, what are your plans once your playing career is completed?
After basketball I want to open up a gym and do some personal training for younger players. Maybe I can do some coaching or maybe getting involved behind the scenes at the professional level. I just want to be involved in basketball as long as possible.

A weekend filled with intense basketball ended much like the 2015 championship. Defending champion New Jersey Thunder needed a late basket to win the APBL title, this time it was a one-point victory over Hudson Valley Kingz.
In a wild back-and-forth affair, New Jersey took a slim 22-21 lead after one quarter. Hudson Valley played much more confident in the second to lead at halftime 52-46.
Both teams made runs in the third quarter with the Thunder first. After the home team build up a six-point advantage 67-61, the Kingz stormed back and by the end of the quarter led 76-74.
A close fourth quarter followed with Hudson Valley building a five-point lead with 4:57 to play. New Jersey would not go down easy, but still trailed by five with 1:38 left. That margin was cut to one with :14 remaining. A foul was called on the next play and after two free throws New Jersey led 98-97!
Hudson Valley did not panic, taking possession with :09 to play. A drive to the paint by Shereef Taylor resulted in a pair of free throws for the Kingz, who led 99-98 with just :04 on the clock. After a timeout the Thunder inbounded the ball from half court and found a streaking Charles Funches (6'8''-F-88, college: Hampton) under the basket. Although contested Funches easily scored to make it 100-99. Hudson Valley called timeout, but threw the ball away and their shot at the championship.
