Campus Times Archives

In UR’s 92-73 victory over Emory University on Saturday, Feb. 25, junior guard John DiBartolomeo made 11 of 15 field goal attempts, draining all four of his 3-pointers and 14 of 15 free throw attempts. This gave him 40 points for the game, making him the first Yellowjacket to score 40 points in a game since 1992. He also had nine boards, six assists and four steals.

What is your major?
Financial economics.

Why did you choose to come to UR?
I initially found out about UR because I was recruited. I decided to attend because it was the best mix of competitive, successful basketball with a great education.

When did your basketball career start?
I’ve been playing basketball for as long as I can remember. I don’t know how old I was when I started playing competitively, but I started playing when I was 2 years old.

What is your favorite part of the game?
That basketball is a team game. Basketball teams usually consist of no more than 15 players, which really creates a better atmosphere, in my opinion. Everyone on the team knows everyone extremely well and it makes practice, games, traveling and any other team-related functions a lot more enjoyable.

How did you feel when you realized that you broke your own record and became the first player in two decades to score 40 points in a game?
I had no idea how many points I had during the game. It wasn’t until I got taken out at the end and everyone on the bench told me I had 40. I didn’t really know what to think and I didn’t know it hadn’t been done in 20 years. But I was definitely excited because I had never scored that much before and it was a fun way to end the season.

How have you embraced your role as a leader on the team?
I’ve tried my best this year to communicate more. I don’t do a lot of the pre-game or post-game talking, but I’ve tried to improve my communication.
