Gescrap BB keeps Samb
Mamadou Samb - Gescrap BBGescrap BB reached a new agreement with big man Mamadou Samb to keep him in the team until the end of the 2013-14 season. Samb (2.08 meters, 22 years old) joined Gescrap in January and saw very limited playing time in the 2011-12 Turkish Airlines Euroleague - just 35 seconds in Game 3 of the playoffs against CSKA. He had joined Bilbao from fellow Spanish club CB Granada, for whom Samb averaged 3.9 points and 2.8 rebounds in 28 games in 2010-11. A native of Senegal, Samb joined the FC Barcelona youth teams as a teenager. He also played for C.B. Sant Josep Badalona and WTC Cornella in the inferior Spanish divisions. Samb has obtained Spanish citizenship too and helped Spain to a bronze medal at the 2009 U20 European Championships in Greece.
