Hometown Sports Hero: Shane DaRosa

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — This week’s Cardi’s Hometown Sports Hero is Providence Sky Chiefs guard Shane DaRosa.

The ABA rookie is Providence’s leading scorer at 18.8 PPG, helping his team to a 10-4 start in their inaugural season.

DaRosa has taken a unique journey to pro basketball. He only played one year of basketball at Shea High School, before receiving All-American honors at Bristol Community College.

His success with the Bees helped him earn a spot on the Cape Verdean national team, and eventually lead to his chance with the Sky Chiefs.
