Keravnos Strovolou (Division A) signed 31-year old Somalian ex-international forward Mohamed Abukar (208-85, college: San Diego State, agency: Two Points). He is a dual citizen owning also American passport. Abukar played last season at Sigal Prishtina in Kosovan SuperLeague. He managed to play in three leagues last year. In 22 SuperLeague games he had 13.4ppg, 3.8rpg and 2.2apg. Abukar helped them to win the league title and the cup. A very impressive season as he was named to Eurobasket.com All-Kosovo League 2nd Team and to the All-Star Game. Abukar also played 6 games in FIBA Europe Cup where he recorded very remarkable stats: 16.0ppg, 5.2rpg and 1.5apg. And finally he contributed to 15 games in Balkan League where he was fifth best scorer with high stats: 17.7ppg and averaged 4.5rpg, 1.9apg and 1.0spg. Abukar contributed to his team winning the Balkan League championship. Quite impressive season as he was voted Eurobasket.com All-Balkan League Player of the Year, Import Player of the Year and Forward of the Year.
The previous (14-15) season he played at Shinshu (BJ League) in Japan. In 45 games he got high stats: 17.5ppg, 4.9rpg and 2.6apg. A very spectacular season in his career as he was named to Asia-Basket.com All-Japanese BJ League Honorable Mention.
In 2008 (a year after he left the college) Abukar was drafted by Austin Toros (D-League) in second round (17th overall).
He attended San Diego State until 2007 and it will be his tenth season in pro basketball.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others Abukar was voted Eurobasket.com All-Swiss LNA Player of the Year back in 2012. He was a member of Somalian Senior National Team in 2013.
Abukar is quite experienced player. He has played in seven different countries on three different continents (Europe, Asia and of course North America). Abukar has played previously professionally in Belgium (Spirou Charleroi), Bulgaria (Lukoil Academic Sofia), Holland (ABC Amsterdam), Italy (AV Cantu), FYR Macedonia (Rabotnicki), D-League (Idaho Stampede and Austin Spurs) and Switzerland (Lugano Tigers).
He could be described: A quick and agile forward, with good fundametals, who can score well from inside and ouitside the paint. Has a good shooting range, runs very well the court for a player of his size.
