York Bruno Larese (July 18, 1938 – February 6, 2016) was an American basketball player and coach. In his childhood, he attended St. Ann's academy (now Archbishop Molloy High School) in Queens.
A 6'4" (1.93 m) guard from the University of North Carolina, Larese was drafted by the NBA twice, once by the St. Louis Hawks in 1960, and once by the Chicago Packers a year later (the draft rules in place at the time permitted this). Larese played seven games for the Packers and was traded to the Philadelphia Warriors. Larese participated in Wilt Chamberlain's famous 100-point game. Larese only played for one season (1961–62) in the NBA.
While at North Carolina he led ACC in foul shooting in 1960 at 86.8 percent, including a 21 for 21 effort against Duke, which stands today as the ACC record. He shot 86.8 percent from the free throw line in 1959–60 which was the single-season UNC record for 25 years.
Larese also served as a head coach for one season in the American Basketball Association, in the 1969–70 season with the New York Nets. He died in 2016 at the age of 77.
