SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News)– The Syracuse Stallions are entering their 2nd year as a franchise with big goals in mind – both on and off the court.
2018 was the inaugural year for the Stallions which saw them go an incredible 24-2. They fell in the final four of the American Basketball Association playoffs.
Coming into 2019, president and general manager Mike Sugomosto made big changes to the organization, introducing new coaches, players, and upper management.
Many of the players on the team are from the area, including CNY native Dajuan Coleman who played three seasons at Syracuse University.
Sugamosto says playing for the Stallions gives players a second opportunity to revitalize their basketball careers in hopes of playing professionally elsewhere someday.
Sugamosto also says The Stallions have more than just basketball in mind.
“We’re really community-based, we do a lot for our community – raising funds, raising supplies for supply drives, as well as getting the community and kids around our players after games, postgame, pregame. We really want to show the kids that there’s an opportunity for the future,” Sugamosto said.
The Stallions will hold education night on Saturday, Nov. 16. Students and teachers will get discounted ticket prices.
