Manhattan signs one more hoops player

By Kieran Darcy

Manhattan head basketball coach Barry Rohrssen announced on Thursday that he has signed one more player to his 2010-2011 recruiting class: Roberto Colonette, a 6-foot-7 forward from Queens who played last season at ASA Institute in New York City, a junior college. He averaged 12.5 points, 8.7 rebounds and 2 blocks per game last season.

Colonette will join the Jaspers next season along with first-team all-CHSAA guard Mike Alvarado from All Hallows, forward Rhamel Brown from Transit Tech, and two other JUCO players -- shooting guard Kidani Brutus, and center Robert Martina from Miami Dade -- in what looks to be a strong recruiting class.
