Capers continue rebuild with 3 newest additions


Recently celebrating his 9 month anniversary as Head Coach of the Capers, Head Coach Dave Petroziello continues to evolve his roster consistent with his long-term plans for the program.  If the first three pieces of his first-ever recruiting class are any evidence, last season’s struggles will rapidly become a thing of the past.  In what is likely only the first set of ultimately will be an 8 to 10 player class, Petroziello has attracted a pair of NCAA Division II transfers, starting with 6’1″ Indiana Rotondo, originally from St. Elizabeth H.S. in Vaughan, ON who started 11 games as a freshman at Mars Hill University (located just north of Asheville, N.C.).  Rotondo is a long, stronger combo guard with range on the perimeter who should upgrade Capers back court immediately.  With 4 seasons of eligibility remaining, Rotondo is a key piece for CBU going forward.  Petroziello also reached into the D-2 ranks for 6’4″ fourth-year wing guard Martin Campbell, who averaged 23 minutes per game in his junior season at University of the District of Columbia (UDC) in Washington, DC for the Firebirds.  Campbell, from Arandel High School (Upper Marlboro, MD) via Danville Area CC, can handle on the perimeter and is a bigger guard who should also help on the glass with his strength and physicality.  Campbell sat out last season and will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.  Adding a third guard to the mix, Petroziello brings in local Nova Scotia point 5’11” Levi Smith III, originally from Auburn Drive H.S. in North Preston who spent his final season of high school at B2B Prep in Ontario before sitting out this past season.  Petroziello continues to pound the pavement and the program will likely announce another set of newcomers in the coming weeks as Capers look to bounce back from last season.
