Mohamed Kone
ESSM Le Portel Cote d'Opale (ProB) agreed terms with 35-year old naturalized Ivorian center Mohamed Kone (211-81, college: Valparaiso). He moved there from Al Sadd in Qatari D1 league where he played this season. In 20 games he had 14.2ppg, 12.6rpg (#3 in the league), 1.8apg, 1.3spg and 1.0bpg. He helped them to make it to the final and cup semifinals. Quite impressive season as he was named to Asia-Basket.com All-Qatar D1 2nd Team and Honorable Mention. The most of last season Kone spent at Aix-Maurienne. In 17 games he recorded 8.8ppg and 7.9rpg (#4 in the league). He also played at Champville (Pepsi LBL) in Lebanese league earlier that season. In three games he recorded 3.3ppg, 4.7rpg (#4 in the league) and 1.3spg.
The previous (13-14) season Kone played at Sanaye (Superleague) in Iran. In 21 games he recorded 15.0ppg, 12.1rpg (#2 in the league) and 1.1spg in 2013-14 season. It was another spectacular year as he was named to Asia-Basket.com Iranian Superleague All-Imports Team.
In 12-13 season he played at Foolad Mahan (Superleague) in Iran. In 7 games he recorded 8.1ppg, 8.0rpg (#2 in the league) and 1.1apg in 2012-13 season.
In 11-12 season Kone played at Meridiano Alicante (LEB Silver) in Spanish league. In 34 games he recorded 4.9ppg and 3.5rpg in 2011-12 season. He represented Ivory Coast at the Afrobasket Championships in Abidjan (Ivory Coast) three years ago. Kone's team got to the Semifinals and his stats at that event were 7 games: 8.3ppg, 5.6rpg, FGP: 47.5%, 3PT: 25.0%, FT: 65.4%.
Kone has played also professionally in Turkey (Erdemir and Antalya), France (Chalon/Saor) and Spain (Gipuzkoa).
He is close to retirement age as a player. It's very possible he may end his playing career at Le Portel.
Kone attended Valparaiso University until 2006 and it is his tenth season as a professional player.

D'Tigers Narrowly escapes Cote D'Ivoire, 78-77 - 12 days ago
Defending champions of the FIBA Afrobasket for Men made their presence known with the victory over Cote D'Ivoire 78-77, but not with a serious fight. An expected-unexpected result it turned out to be, with the notable change of 95% percent of players who brought the championship trophy to Nigeria. Only captain of the team Ikechukwu Diogu (204-C/F-83, college: Arizona St.) returned to represent his country, leaving the former players absent and replaced with new ones.
