  • Mike RosarioDOUAI, France  – Rutgers guard Mike Rosario (Jersey City, N.J.) has been named to the World Juniors All-Tournament Team after helping the Puerto Rico U19 national squad to a 3-2 record and a second place finish in the event. Rosario registered 20 points, five rebounds and four assists, as Puerto Rico concluded the tournament with a 73-59 victory over Australia on Sunday.

    Puerto Rico also earned victories over USA 2KSports (105-90) and Lithuania (58-56), and dropped a pair of one-point decisions to tournament champion Canada (77-76) and host France (85-84). Rosario averaged 20.4 points and 5.0 rebounds in the six-nation tournament, while shooting 29-of-37 from the free throw line.

    The tournament was in preparation for the 2009 FIBA U19 World Championships, set to take place in Auckland, New Zealand July 2-12. Puerto Rico will compete in Group A, along with Angola, Greece and Lithuania in Auckland, known as the “City of Sails.”

    Rosario was named to the BIG EAST All-Rookie Team, the Metropolitan Basketball Writers Association Rookie of the Year, as well as a Freshman All-American by CollegeInsider.com and CollegeHoops.net in 2008-09.  He set the Rutgers freshman all-time scoring mark with 517 points, and averaged 18.9 points-per-game in eight contests against nationally-ranked foes. He concluded the season ranked fifth nationally among the nation’s freshmen in scoring with 16.2 points-per-game. He shared Team M.V.P. honors with fellow rookie Gregory Echenique (Guatire, Venezuela), who played for his home nation of Venezuela in last summer’s FIBA U18 World Championship in Formosa, Argentina.
