Quincy Ford is the new reinforcement for Carpegna Prosciutto Pesaro

Carprgna Prosciutto Pesaro announced on Tuesday, July 11, the signing of Quincy Ford, a 1993 class big forward who grew up at Northeastern University and has just returned from several experiences in Europe, most recently at Alba Fehervar, Hungary.

Vuelle’s new head coach, Maurizio Buscaglia, commented on the arrival of the U.S. player in no uncertain terms, illustrating his characteristics: “Quincy is a player who knows Europe well,” he told the club’s official channels; “he embraced the idea of playing with us with immediacy and participation. He will cover the role of ‘4’, has running ability, opens the court, attacks the iron and defensively has good athleticism and sense of rebounding.”

“He complements the other players in the department, which is important for us, and he is a team player,” the red and white coach added. “His challenge will be to put himself on the line in a competitive and tough league, but like all of us his yes has been decided.

Carpegna Prosciutto Pesaro is coming off a good season, which ended with an eighth place finish in the regular season and subsequent qualification for the playoffs. In the postseason, the team then coached by Jasmin Repesa was able to give Olimpia Milano, the No. 1 seed in the tournament awarding the scudetto, a hard time, but the future Italian champions managed to impose themselves three games to one: Vuelle’s only success came in game 3, in front of their own public, 88-83.
