Bryant & Stratton College is pleased to announce the addition of men's basketball to the New York athletics program. Starting in September 2018, the Bryant & Stratton College men's basketball team will begin competition in Division I of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA).
Dan Frisina will lead the Bobcats as the first head coach in program history. A Syracuse native, Frisina comes to Bryant & Stratton College after stints at Onondaga Community College (OCC) and Oswego State College, where he served as an Assistant Basketball Coach. He helped OCC's legendary coach Dave Pasiak, the winningest coach in program history, reach the National Junior College Athletic Association Mid-State Athletic Conference Tournament. He also played a major role in the individual development of players both on and off the court at OCC and Oswego. A graduate from Henninger High School (2004), Frisina played for OCC during his undergrad years (2004-2006) before transferring to Coastal Carolina University where he earned a bachelor's degree in Physical Education.
"Dan comes to us with great motivation and a desire to win," Bryant & Stratton College Athletic Director Nick Dimitrievski said. "Dan is excited to present another option to local student athletes that would like to attend Bryant & Stratton College and compete in intercollegiate athletics at the Division I level of the USCAA."
Frisina will launch an immediate local and statewide recruiting plan seeking potential student athletes to start competition in the fall of 2018. Bryant & Stratton College will offer athletic scholarships to qualified student athletes.
