Michael Alfio "Mick" Pennisi (born March 13, 1975) is a Filipino-Australian professional basketball player in the Philippine Basketball Association who currently plays for the Barako Bull Energy. He was automatically hired by Red Bull in 2000. He was then traded to San Miguel for future draft picks.
An Australian-Filipino, Pennisi is a very good left-handed 3-point shooter. He played five seasons with the Townsville Crocodiles before moving to the Philippines. In the 2007–08 PBA Philippine Cup, he was the third highest 3-point field goal shooter behind his former teammate Mike Hrabak and Ren-Ren Ritualo. His career high is 29 points.
He averaged 10.8 points in the 2007 Season. He also averaged 7.6 Rebounds.
Pennisi was traded to the San Miguel Beermen after the 2008 PBA Fiesta Conference in exchange for San Miguel's 2010 first round pick. He is also a many-time member of the Philippine national basketball team.
On March 21, 2012, he achieved his 700th career 3-point field goal in the 1st quarter of their game against the Petron Blaze Boosters. He became only the eighth player to achieve such feat joining a list that include "The Triggerman" Allan Caidic and the "Point Laureate" Ronnie Magsanoc. On that date also he made a controversy by reacting late in a flop when Will McDonald threw the ball thus, hitting Mick Pennisi in the head.
