The Montreal Alliance announced, Wednesday, the signing of Montreal point guard Kimi Osei, who became the first player in the history of the extended team of the Canadian Elite Basketball League (LECB).
Osse, 29, grew up in the Parc-Extension District. He attended Saint Augustin Roscelli School and Notre Dame College before playing for four years with the University of Arkansas Trojans at Little Rock. He participated in March Madness 2016.
Osse spent the last two seasons at LECB with the Saskatchewan Rattlers.
With the Rattlers, he averaged 11.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 27.1 minutes played per game, and fired 35% of the three-point streak.
“We are delighted to announce the signing of Kimi as the first in franchise history,” said General Manager Joel Anthony. Having a local player involved on the pitch as well as in his community makes this signing special for us. His leadership as well as his league experience will play a huge role for us, as will his ability to contribute on both sides of the ball. »
The Alliance will begin its first season at LECB in May.
