Manhattan Pride Looking to Build Into the 2016-17 Season - Nov 16, 2016

E-mail Mike:
Mike's Articles

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.
