follow us on
The Metropolitan All-Stars, down by six (6) points with 17.5 seconds remaining in regulation, pulled out a miraculous victory by scoring 8 straight point to hand the Rockville Victors their first defeat of the season 108 to 106. The All-Stars were led in scoring by Cedric Steward and Antwon 'The Hawk' Hawkins with 20 points each, followed by Elyon Bush with 19, Curtis Massey with 18 and Curtis Crews with 10 points and 12 rebounds. Coach Al Brown said " it's always good to see how your team responds to adversity early in the season, especially when you have several new players to fit into your rotation." One of those new players, Cutis Massey, had an excellent debut with the All-Stars. Playing limited minutes, Massey made the most of his time on the court scoring 18 point and getting several key offensive rebounds to help secure the victory for the All-Stars. Antwon Hawkins and Cedrick Stewart both had steals and lay-ups in the final seconds of the game to lead their team to their first win of the new season. Our guys never give up, they always believe that they can win no matter what the situation, that's what I love about this team" says Brown, "they believe in themselves when nobody else in the gym does, and they play for 48 minutes, that's our motto (48 GRIND)". The All-Stars were also playing without several of their key players, including Eric Poole, Terrance Carter, Andrew Harding and Calvin Brown. These four players accounted for over 55 points and over 30 rebounds and over 15 assists last season, all of them will be in action next week with the exception of Calvin Brown, who is just stating the play-offs in Lima Peru. The All-Stars play the APBL defending champions, the Beltway Bombers, on Saturday, November 10, 2012 @ 1:00pm @ Central High School, 200 Cabin Branch Road, Capitol Height, MD 20743 and the All-Stars also play this Sunday, November 11, 2012 @ 1:00 against the Capital City Express @ the Benning Road Recreation Center on Benning Road in North East Washington, DC. Anthony Williams 21 points, Tavares Cooper 18 points, Armond Hill 17 points and Pierre Johnson 14 led the Victors in scoring in defeat. The victors made (9) 3 point baskets and led most of the game, but the All-Stars defense down the stretch made the difference in the games outcome.

The Manhattan Pride are entering their sixth professional basketball season with probably their most talented roster to date. The Pride have a group of talented season veterans and have nine players returning this season from last year's squad that helped the Pride have their best season in franchise history. The Pride are looking to improve on last season and make a deep run in the APBL playoffs. The team is currently 4-1 in the first round but have been unable to make a deep run into the later rounds of the playoffs.
The Pride opened the 2016-17 season on Saturday, November 12th by defeating the New York Crusaders 119-118 in thrilling fashion as Ahmed Nagaya (6'4''-F, college: Buffalo St.) nailed a half court buzzer beating shot! Nagaya led the team with 31 points, Mike John (6'3''-G) added 25 points, and Jeffrey Noel (6'5''-F) finished with 22 points to round out the double figure scorers for the Pride. Rhydeem Samedi and Charles Jones (6'9''-F) each added eight points, while Seon Jack (6'1''-G) finished with seven points and eight assists. Matas Rascuis, Frank Canales, and Tyrique Wade rounded out the scoring with six points a piece.
Nagaya is a dynamic and athletic 6'6' forward who averaged 22.8 points per game and was the team's leading scorer last season. Also returning from last season are guards Mike John, William Modeste (6'1''-G-81, college: Polytechnic), Seon Jack and Frank Canales. At the forward position the team returns Nate Young (6'7''-G/F-86), Matas Rascius, Idris Abjabe, and Rhydeem Samedi. Nate Young is on the roster and is expected to rejoin the team in January 2017.
John was third on the team in scoring, averaging 21.5 points per game and first on the team in assists with 6.0 assists per game and was named as last season's APBL Rookie of the Year. The other veterans joining John in the backcourt are Frank Canales, a gritty team-first, two-way veteran that can score, Tyrique Wade, a streaky shooter and Seon Jack, who is also a streaky shooter and one of the league's best perimeter defenders. William Modeste, the team's founder and CEO, also returns to the team both on and off the court. Modeste is the franchise's all-time leader in three-pointers made and won APBL Executive of the Year honors last season.
In the frontcourt, joining Nagaya will be Charles Jones, Jeffrey Noel, Matas Rascuis, Mark Candelario (6'8''-C), Khadim Ndiaye, Nate Young, Brandon Burnett (6'8''-PF-86), Rhydeem Samedi, and Idris Agbaje (6'5''-F). Rascius is a post player with the ability to score from 15-18 feet and in the post using his clever post moves. Agbaje is another post player with the ability to score in the post and from the perimeter out to 15 feet. Candelario is a mobile big that can score inside and guard the interior extremely well. Burnett is a good interior player as well that can block shots and rebound well. Ndiaye is a former St. John's player that is an effective midrange scorer at the forward position.
With the Pride getting younger and more athletic, key players for them will be Samedi, who can score inside and outside while defending multiple positions. Newcomer Jeffrey Noel is expected to make a huge impact for the Pride especially offensively with his wide array of scoring talents. Center Charles Jones is an active big with good hands that can score inside, is a good passer, and moves very well defensively.
