Ali began his training at the Sagemont Institute in Weston where he stood out for his numbers. In the 2015/16 season, he made the leap to university, playing for four seasons at the prestigious UCLA University where he met another player from Palencia, Noah Allen. Last season he made the leap to Europe to play some days for the Norwegian team Baerum Basket in which he averaged 24.7 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2 assists. “He is a versatile player. He is capable of doing many things on the field, he is capable of rebounding and reaching the opposite field, he can generate for others, he has a good pick and roll game and he is also quite a physical player. We hope that he will adapt quickly to European basketball, but we think he is a very interesting player, ”said Pedro Rivero, purple coach. Palencia Baloncesto welcomes you and wishes you good luck in this journey together.
