Getting to know the Manhattan Pride: Rocco Rubino - Nov 5, 2012


POSTED BY:

Mike's Articles


Rocco Rubino
Throughout this APBL season, we will highlight the Manhattan Pride roster, one player at a time.

Todays highlighted player is Rocco Rubino (6'2''-G-89, college: Hunter), a 6'3" guard from Brooklyn, New York. After playing his high school basketball at storied Archbishop Malloy, Rubino spent the first two years of his collegiate career at St. Francis College (NY). Rubino then spent the 2009-10 season with Hunter College, where he led the team in scoring by averaging 18.6 points per game. He also averaged 4.8 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game.

After advancing to the Final Four of the New York qualifier of the 2011 Red Bull King of the Rock One on One Tournament, Rubino played overseas in the Italian C2 League. There he finished as the top scorer in the league. Now after returning to New York, Rubino joins the Manhattan Pride for the 2012-13 APBL season.

1. Where and for what teams have you played for throughout your professional career?

Last year was my first season of professional basketball. I played for Studentesca Licata in the Italian C2 league. My stats for the last season were 23.5 points per game 6.3 rebounds per game and 4.4 assists per game, finishing the top scorer in the league. I played one game with the Manhattan Pride when I came home in April and scored 36 points versus the Hudson Valley Kings. In the summer, I also participated in the Orlando Eurobasket Summer League.

2. How long have you been with the Manhattan Pride and what is your role with the team?

This will be my first season with the Manhattan Pride. My role on the team is to be aggressive on offense and defense, creating scoring opportunities for my teammates and myself. I will be playing combo guard, playing both the point and shooting guard positions.

3. 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 lead our team to an APBL championship. Ultimately I would love to continue playing basketball wherever life takes me, whether that will be in the United States or back overseas. I would like to play at the highest level possible that I can play.

4. Have you thought about life after playing professional basketball? If so, what are your plans once your playing career is completed?

When playing professional basketball ends, I would like to get into coaching at the high school or college level.
