15 - Quincy Douby

Position: Guard, Height/Weight: 6-3 / 175 Birth date: May 16, 1984 High School: St. Thomas More Prep (Oakdale, Conn.) College: Rutgers Career Highlights: Douby played shooting guard for the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. The Sacramento Kings made him the 19th selection of the 2006 NBA Draft. He is said to be the best shooter and possibly the best pure scorer to ever come out of the basketball rich Coney Island. In his junior year, Douby became one of the top guards in the Big East and was named to the All Big-East team. He led the Big East in scoring with 25.4 points a game, becoming the first Rutgers player to lead the Big East in scoring. In addition, he broke the all-time single season scoring record at Rutgers.

NBA Development limits team’s roster size to ten players. The medical release allows the BayHawks to retain Lafayette’s player rights while he recovers from his fractured hand. Upon his recovery the team would have the option to return him to the ten man roster.
