Nate Young
The Empire State Basketball Club is new to the Atlantic Professional Basketball League but they are already making noise in their first season of competition. The team was started by APBL veteran Nate Young (6'7''-F-86). Prior to starting the team, Young spent five years playing and working with the Manhattan Pride. Young stated that his time with the Pride was a great experience but he felt that it was just time to move on and start his own organization. He praised the Pride organization, stating that they are still like family, that he learned a lot from the organization, and that his experience with them was priceless.

His mission with the Empire State Basketball Club is to build the community through basketball and community service. The team wants to continue to expand heading into the summer with basketball camps and other events for the youth. The team's goal for their players is to provide them with opportunities to play overseas. Young has experience and connections playing in South America which he feels will help the team accomplish this goal as they move forward.

Empire State is led by veterans Nate Young, Kareem Corprew (6'6''-F-88), Alonzo Robinson (6'1''-G), and Matas Rascius (6'7''-F, college: Baruch), all of whom have overseas and APBL experience. The rest of the team consists of Frenchman Hugo Willing, crafty point guard Nicolas Davis, athletic wing Bernard Jones (5'10''-PG), emotional leader Simuel Stevenson (5'10''-G)n, two-way player Jessie Dixon, dynamic guard Brian Payne, post player Mark Candelario (6'10''-C, college: Oswego St.), and high-energy defensive specialist Korede Griffith (5'11''-PG). The team is also coached by first-year head coach Anthony Lewis.

On December 6th, Empire State took on the undefeated NYC Crusaders. Empire State trailed by as much as 30 points before rallying to a 130-128 victory to end the Crusaders' undefeated start to the season. Empire State's top performers included Nate Young (37 points, 8 rebounds), Korede Griffith (24 points, 6 rebounds, 5 steals), Bernard Jones (29 points, 5 rebounds), Hugo Willing (9 points, 12 rebounds, 3 blocks), Simuel Stevenson (10 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists), and Nick Davis (21 points, 6 assists). The Crusaders were led by Isaiah Holman and Jean Martinez who finished with 38 points and 17 points, respectively.

The loss dropped the Crusaders to 5-1, while Empire State improved to 2-3 on the season. Empire State will face another tough opponent this weekend as they face the 2016 APBL runner-up, APBL United, on Sunday.
