A pair of Ghanaian-Italian Internationals is experiencing mixed feelings following the conclusion of the 2020-2021 Italian Serie A Regular Season.

Swingman Awudu Abass will compete in the playoffs with third seed Virtus Bologna but Vanoli Cremona Guard David Cournooh won’t play in the post season.


Cournooh’s Cremona ended the season with the 10th seed after recording 11 wins and 17 losses while Bologna spotted a 19 win, nine loss record for the season.

Abass is slated to compete for Bologna in the first round of the playoffs on Thursday, May 13 against sixth seed Treviso. Abass joined Bologna this season from Germani Brescia and is competing for his second league title following his 2018 win with Olimpia Milano.

His debut season hasn’t gone as expected as he has struggled to fit in averaging 6.7 points and 2.6 rebounds in 17.6 minutes across 26 games.
