Urunday Universitario (LUB) confirmed in their roster experienced 35-year old American forward Michael Sweetney (203-131kg-82, college: Georgetown). He played there last season. In 14 LUB games he had 10.9ppg, 12.7rpg (#3 in the league), 1.5apg and 1.1bpg. A very impressive season as he was named to Latinbasket.com All-Uruguay LUB Honorable Mention and to the All-Star Game. In 2003 Sweetney was drafted by New York Knicks (NBA) in first round (9th overall). He attended Georgetown University and it is his 14th (!!!) season in pro basketball. The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others Sweetney's team made it to the Puerto Rican BSN Semifinals in 2010 and 2012. He was also voted Latinbasket.com All-Puerto Rican BSN 1st Team back in 2010. Sweetney is quite experienced player. He has played in eight different countries on three different continents (Asia, Latin America and of course North America). Sweetney has played previously professionally in China (Guangzhou), Dominican Rep., Venezuela (Guaiqueries), NBA (Chicago Bulls and Boston Celtics), Puerto Rico (Vaqueros, Brujos and Cangrejeros), Uruguay (Atenas and Bigua), Dominican Republic (Metros de Santiago) and D-League (Erie Bay Hawks). He is close to retirement age as a player. It's very possible he may end his playing career at U Universitario. Sweetney could be described:
Can rebound and has great shooting touch. Mike catches the ball in traffic. He also has good scoring instincts in the post.
True size and athleticism are a bit of concern; great hands and knows how to score; an animal in the paint.
