The B.Braun Sheffield Sharks are delighted to announce the signing of European forward Bouna Ndiaye.

Bouna joins the Sharks after a successful season at the Glasgow Rocks in 2018-19. Ndiaye was very productive in his first year in the BBL, averaging 10 points per game, 3.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists.

“It was important we have a player with Bouna‚Äôs versatility and attacking style of play. He is a very strong athletic forward with a high IQ. Offensive and defensively he can be used in a lot of different ways to help the team,” said Head Coach Atiba Lyons.

Of Norwegian origin, Ndiaye developed his career at high school in Pennsylvania before heading to Northwest Nazarene University and finally starting his professional career in Glasgow.

“I am looking forward to joining the Sharks. I think Sheffield has a very strong history of winning and I hope I can help win some silverware this season,” stated Bouna.

“We are really pleased in the shape of the team so far – we are looking forward to seeing all our new signings and how they blend with the returnees from last season. I believe we have made the right choices to increase our chances of success,” said Lyons.

Details of the Sharks pre-season preparations will be announced shortly with the first home game of the new season taking place on Sunday 22nd September, when Manchester Giants are the visitors to Ponds Forge International Sports Centre.
