OUSMANE BARRO

Rilski Sportist Samokov (NBL) tabbed 33-year old Senegalese power forward Ousmane Barro (207-111kg-84, college: Marquette). He has played for the last two years at U-Banca Transilvania Cluj Napoca in Romanian Liga Nationala. Barro managed to play in three leagues last year (!!!). In 39 Liga Nationala games he averaged 9.7ppg, 5.7rpg and 1.0apg. He helped them to win the cup and make to league semifinals. Good season as he was selected League Player of the Week. Barro also played 12 games in FIBA Europe Cup where he had 8.8ppg, 6.1rpg and 1.3apg. And finally he contributed to 2 games in Basketball Champions League where he recorded 9.5ppg, 4.5rpg, 1.0spg and 1.5bpg.
Among other achievements Barro won Romanian League championship title in 2017. He received also Eurobasket.com All-Romanian League Player of the Year award and Eurobasket.com All-Romanian League Import Player of the Year award in 2017.
Barro played at the WABA Club Championships seven years ago. His team got to the Semifinals.
Barro is a very experienced player. And here thanks to pro basketball he experienced life in six different countries playing on three different continents. He is familiar with European, Asian and of course North American leagues. Barro has played previously professionally also in France (JL Bourg, Entente Orleans 45 and Denain Voltaire), Hungary (Szolnok), Iran (Zob Ahan), Japan (Tochigi Brex), Poland (Gornik) and Romania (Targu Mures and Pitesti).
He attended Marquette University until 2008 and it will be his eleventh (!!!) season in pro basketball.
Let's have closer look into Barro's outlook: Ousmane's size and athleticism is very exciting to all of us, but his commitment, personality and work ethic are what we believe will eventually help him become an excellent player. Ousmane understands the value of hard work and has made a commitment to getting better. What he lacks in game experience, he makes up for in his willingness and desire to learn and improve. Some of the skills that standout for him basketball-wise are his incredible ability to run the floor, his 6-10 height and 7-2 wingspan, a desire and willingness to rebound and score inside, as well as continued improvement facing the basket.
