follow us on
The Undefeated Metropolitan All-Stars escaped with a narrow victory over the Capital City Express.
The Metropolitan All-Stars, playing for the second time in as many days, came away with another victory by defeating the Capital City Express 106 97. The All-Stars came out a little flat but still managed to lead 29 24 after the first quarter and 54 41 at the half. The express, a determined and scrappy group came roaring back in the fourth quarter cutting the lead to three on three different occasions before succumbing to the bigger All-Stars. Terrance Carter again led the way for the All-Stars with 22 points. The All-Stars got lots of help from newcomer, Raason Young, a high flying, sharp shooting 65 guard, who scored a career high, 21 points, including several gravity defying slam dunks that really got the crowd excited. Cedric Steward, the teams floor general, had a very solid performance scoring 15 points, on many slashing moves to the basket, handing out many assists to open team mates and playing solid defense against the Expresss point guards, forcing many turnovers down the stretch. Antwon Hawkins turned in a very high energy performance scoring 16 points and playing tenacious defense all over the court, his athletic ability was very evident and he made several high flying blocks. Elyon Bush 13 points and Will Schwartzstein 11 points rounded out the double digit scoring for the All-Stars. All-Stars coach Al Brown says, This was a very hard fought game for both teams, the players are very familiar with one another and go at each other very competitively, we were still a little banged up from our game yesterday and it showed down the stretch, at one point we missed 7 of 8 free throws. The owner of the team, Calvin Brown, Jr., who is currently in Lima, Peru completing the playoffs there, said, Its good to have played and defeated the three other teams in our division, especially since they include the defending APBL champions and the Goodman summer league champions. We still have a lot of work to do, but if we can stay healthy and continue to improve, I like our chances, Im looking forward to coming home very soon. The Express were led in scoring by Quentin Morrow 22 points, Darin Mancy 19, Will Southhorn 15, Nicholas Griffin 12, Wesley Hunt 11 and Andre Hardy 10. Both teams are in actions again next week with away games. The All-Stars play @ the Rockville Victors and the Express play @ NYC 524.

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.
