RazorSharks Sign Returning Big Man Darren Moore
by Raul Oliva posted 09/19/2014
The Rochester RazorSharks have resigned returning big man, Darren Moore for the 2015 PBL Season. Moore’s athleticism and ability to play his back to the basket allows him to play the forward and center positions. The returning big man averaged 10.7 ppg and 8.8 rpg during last year’s PBL Championship season.
Moore brings championship experience, winning the 2014 PBL Championship and the National Championship with Cardinal Stritch University his senior year. The big man was named National Champion MVP after an outstanding 16.4 ppg in tournament play. He was also named to first team All-American and first team All-Conference. Last season Moore posted a season high 18 points twice (Buffalo 716ers & Lynchburg Titans) and held an impressive 53.1% FG% throughout the season.
“Darren was an excellent presence in the post and relentless on the glass,” said Ryan Raftery, General Manager of the Rochester RazorSharks. “We have high expectations for him this season.”

WXXI had a full house Saturday morning! Finley was invited to join the open house where lots was going on. Finley had a chance to greet and take pictures with everyone as the doors opened. Lots of characters were at the event but Finley held his own, dancing to the music and playing with the kids. It was a good time at the WXXI building on State Street.
On behalf of the RazorSharks, we wanted to thank WXXI for allowing us to attend their entertaining open house on Saturday. It was great to see the building and have fun with the community at the same time! We look forward to partnering with them in the future!

The Rochester RazorSharks have signed 6’7 forward David Jackson, a former Penn State product, for the 2015 PBL season. During the past two years, Jackson has played overseas in the Finland and German leagues.
Jackson played 4 seasons in the Big Ten Conference for Penn State. During his career at Penn State he averaged 7.2 ppg and 3.9 rpg. He was named "Mr. Defense" and "Most Improved Player" for 2009-10 season. Jackson’s most memorable career game while at Penn State came in a victory over Sacred Heart during his junior year, where he posted a career-best 26 points and 4 assists.
“David is very skilled and fundamentally sound,” said Robert Spon, head coach of the Rochester RazorSharks. “He can shoot an NBA 3-pointer with ease and has a great basketball IQ.” As Coach Spon would know, he has trained Jackson during the summer for two years.
Saturday morning at Tecniplex Mall parking lot, the Touch-A-Truck event was held and Finley had the opportunity to attend. The D.J. had Finley dancing his fin off with great music selection. Food was provided, inflatable bouncy house, and of course trucks! Kids were honking and sirens were going off!
On behalf of the RazorSharks, we wanted to thank Touch-A-Truck for the fun we had on Saturday. We look forward to partnering with them in the future!

CURE held their 5TH Annual 5k and Fun Walk on Saturday at Genesee Valley Park. The event had refreshments and was rocking with their very own D.J. Finley got to show off his dance moves and take pictures with the supporters. The rain wasn’t holding anyone back. It was a fun time interacting with all the people and giving away free game tickets.
On behalf of the RazorSharks, we wanted to thank all of the CURE staff for holding a successful and fun event. We look forward to partnering with them in the future!
