Scott Ulaneo lands in the NCAA: the Stellazzurra Academy's player will play at Seattle University next season

Pubblicato il Mercoledì 13 Aprile 2016 - General News

 Another Stellazzurra Basketball Academy's player is ready to cross the sea and play in the NCAA next season. After the young athlete visited the Seattle University campus last week, Scott Ulaneo decided to accept a scholarship from the college of the most important city in the State of Washington (in the pic, the time of signature). Next year he will play for Seattle Redhawks, a team that competes in the Western Athletic Conference, in the NCAA Division I. Scott will transfer to the United States at the beginning of the 2016/17 season. Ulaneo will be the third Stellazzurra's player to join college basketball, after Amar Alibegovic at St John’s two years ago and the most recent Kristinn Palsson to Marist.  


HIS CAREER Power forward, 206cm tall, originally from Rome and who will celebrate his 18th birthday on June 27th, Scott joined Stellazzurra Academy seven years ago. An athlete who plays for U18 Italian National Team and during current season with Serie B, U20 and U18 for Stellazzurra, with which he averaged 4.4 points+3.3 rebounds in 18.3 minutes in 21 games in Serie B, gained direct qualification to the U20 National Finals and finally the Latium regional title for the U18 team, busy these few weeks to qualify for the U18 National Finals. Scott is an excellent student who attends St. George’s International School of Rome and will go on to study International Business in college (in the pic, with his next teammate Morgan Means).


SEATTLE REDHAWKS In the last couple of years the Seattle Redhawks scouts are one of the most frequent guests at our Arena Felici. The University team play their home games at KeyArena in Seattle (in the pic below), a venue which holds almost 18 thousands spectators and was the Arena for the NBA Supersonics back in the day. The Seattle Redhawks are led by Cameron Dollar, who next year will begin his eighth season as Head Coach. Last season they ended the Western Athletic Conference in 4th place with a 7 wins and 7 defeats record (15-17, seasonal total), getting knocked out in the second round of the WAC Tournament and missing the NCAA tournament qualification. The team’s highest achievement was reaching the Final Four in 1957/58, where they lost the Final Game to Kentucky. The most famous SU athlete is the hall of famer Elgin Baylor, 11 time NBA “All Star” player in the 60’s.
