can report American-Ghanaian Small Forward/ Shooting Guard Bashir Ahmed has registered another double digit scoring outing in another league loss.

The 29 year old played 34 minutes as a starter in Targu Jiu’s 67-86 loss to Craiova in Round 21 of the 2021-2022 Romanian Basketball League Regular Season.

6 foot 6 Inch Ahmed filled the stat sheet by registering 21 points, seven rebounds, two blocks and two steals and was one of only three Targu players to score in double figures.

Ahmed is averaging 11.6 points and 4.4 rebounds for the team that ranks 13th on the 16 team league standings with five wins in 20 games.

Ahmed played at St. John’s University before turning pro
