Joining UBCO straight out of the Edge School for Athletes in Calgary, the 6’7” Imoudu Ibrahim’s, who goes by the nickname ‘Mo’ first year with the UBCO Heat men’s basketball team was last year, 2019-20.
The true freshman play in all 20 games for the Heat, making 12 starts, and compiling the fourth-most minutes played on the entire roster with over 400. The forward shot over 50 per cent from the floor for the year, and finished with a pair of double-doubles.
The UBCO management student was just as much of a presence on the offensive glass as the defensive this year. Mo tallied an equal number of boards, 52, on both ends of the floor.
Looking forward to returning to the Okanagan campus soon to resume working with head coach Clay Pottinger, Mo found the choice of UBCO a layup.
“I enjoyed playing for coach Clay [Pottinger] in the 2017 Canada Summer Games and I wanted to continue playing for him. That combined with UBCO’s excellent academic’s... it was a no brainer.”
