Omar Samhan (211 cm, St. Mary’s’10) is heading to Ratiopharm ULM (Germany, BBL) to replace the outgoing American Brian Cusworth (213 cm, Harvard’07). Cusworth joined Ulm in January but his stay did not work out so the team has brought in 24-year old center Samhan as a replacement. American-Egyptian Samhan has been playing in the Philippines with Tropang Texters where he featured in just two games but managed to score over 15 points in both.
Last season Omar Samhan played with B.C. Zalgiris Kaunas (Lithuania, LKL) where he played a total of 28 games in the Lithuanian league and averaged 5.2ppg and 3.9rpg.
