Alhaji Mohammed Alhaji Mohammed

American born Ghanaian Shooting Guard/Point Guard Alhaji Mohammed has been inducted into French Basketball League Pro A side Limoges.

Mohammed played for Limoges during the team’s time in the lower division (Pro B) for two seasons after graduating from University of Louisville.

The Combo Guard averaged 19.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game in his debut season and recorded 16.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game in his second season.

Mohammed moved on and has since played for teams in several European countries including Hungary, Spain and Romania in his lengthy career.

The veteran Guard’s plan to play his 16th year as a professional is on hold; Mohammed signed to play for Tunisian giant US Monastir for the Basketball Africa League (BAL) prior to the league’s suspension due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

The 38 year old player is the younger brother of NBA Champion Nazr Mohammed who played for San Antonio Spurs, Chicago Bulls and Oklahoma City Thunder.
