Mike Rodriguez will join the Leicester Riders for the upcoming BBL season.

Leicester Riders have further strengthened their backcourt with the addition of Mike Rodriguez to the BBL roster ahead of the All-Stars Basketball Championships and the BBL season.

Rodriguez, a Boston native, joins from Southern Illinois University where he led the team in scoring (12.9 points), assists (4.0), free throws (150) and steals (45) in his senior season.

“Mike is an exciting player,” opening Coach Paternostro on the latest signing. “I really enjoyed watching him play and was impressed with his ability to make plays for himself and others.”

“He is a tough guy to defend, his passing, ball handling and athleticism will help make an impact on the game and alongside his scoring he was able to get to the ft line 6 times per game his senior year.”

Rodriguez is expected to join the team in the next week as pre-season training ramps up ahead of the Allstars Basketball Championship as well as the start of the regular season the following week.
