"I have known Angelo for almost 20 years, first playing for him at Hoop Club and Kapiti College, and now working alongside him as a coach. His passion for basketball and young people is infectious, and he has a way of communicating with you that makes you really believe in yourself. He has probably forgotten more about basketball than many coaches in NZ have ever known and I would give him the highest recommendation."
