Our previews of the 2013-14 Rhody walk-ons continue with Shane Plunkett. Like Jonathan Nazarko, he already has a year of experience as a member of the Rhode Island Rams basketball team. So it’s hard to know what to expect this season… will Plunkett’s playing time be the same? Or will his experience allow him to play a more expanded role on this year’s squad? Let’s take a look at a few more notes.

  • Appeared in six games last season, tallying four minutes total.
  • Nazarko made his first tick on the stat sheet in the St. Mary’s game, grabbing a rebound in one minute of play.
  • Attempted his first shot and only shot of the season – a three pointer – against the St. Joseph’s Hawks. Nazarko logged two minutes total in the 81-44 Rhody loss.
  • Finished the season shooting just the 0-1 with one rebound.

Nazarko is no stranger to winning. He was a member of the New York Class A state championship team in back-to-back season in high school. Let’s hope he can be another part of a winning team this season.
