The B Braun Sharks are very proud to announce the signing of Jordan Ratinho for the remainder of the 2020-21 BBL season.
The 6’5 guard graduated from the University of San Francisco last May after spending 4 years playing with the Men’s Basketball programme, starting every game his senior season.
Ratinho began his professional career earlier this season in Herford, Germany but after only playing 2 matches the team’s season was cancelled, making him available.
“It was unfortunate what happened in Germany but I’m excited to continue my pro career in Sheffield. The first week of practice has been great, the guys and coaching staff have been helping me fit in nicely. There’s a lot of talent here, I can’t wait to start playing games.”
The 1st year pro out of Concord, California averaged 8.9 pts 1.9 reb 1.1 ast last season with the San Francisco Dons.
Head Coach Atiba Lyons is delighted with the addition of Ratinho.
“It’s great to have Jordan on board. We had a spot to fill and he will really add some more needed depth to our roster. So far he’s integrated well in training, has a great shooting touch. We look forward to seeing him on the court in upcoming games.”
Jordan and the Sharks are back in the Tank this Sunday 3rd January at 3pm.
