American born Ghanaian Small Forward Bashir Ahmed has recorded 24 points in his latest outing for Prishtina in the Kosovo Super Liga.

Bashir’s 24 point outing helped the league leading side to its 26th win in the 2018-2019 season thanks to a 94-91 victory over Rahoveci.

The win extends Prishtina’s unbeaten run in the ongoing season to 26 in as many games with Power Forward Berisha Dardan scoring a game leading 42 points.

For former St, John’s University product Bashir, he added 14 rebounds to his double digit scoring tally in 38 minutes as a starter for the runaway leaders in Kosovo.

Second ranked Ylli has 18 wins and eight losses this season with Rahoveci in third place with 17 wins and 10 losses in the campaign.

Ahmed’s latest production bumps his averages to 13 points and 5.4 rebounds in nine games since signing from Olimpico in Argentina this season.

Bashir went undrafted in last year’s NBA Draft after averaging 12.3 points and five rebounds. Pristina plays Prizreni in the eight team league on Saturday, April 13.
