Ghana Small Forward Bashir Ahmed last night scored a career high 19 points in St. John’s University’s 72-79 to Delaware State University in the ongoing NCAA season. The stunning loss at St. John’s Carnesecca Arena, New York was the Red Storm’s fifth loss in seven games played this season.

Ahmed’s offensive production was the highest of his very young NCAA Division I career after he transferred following a successful two year stint at Hutchinson Community College in Division II. He top scored for his team on the back of converting four of seven three point attempts. He was also efficient from the field as he scored seven of 12 baskets. He added seven rebounds to his stat line for the game.

However, his team did not shoot the ball well from the three point zone as they converted 12 of 37 attempts from distance. Teammate Shamorie Ponds was second on the team’s scoring chart with 15 points.

Delaware Guard Devin Morgan top scored in the game with 28 points to lead the Hornets to its second win of the season. St. John’s latest loss means the side also has two wins and five losses for the season.

Ahmed will look to continue his impressive start to life in Division as St. John’s take on Tulane University in Louisiana.
