Rodrigo Seoane becomes the first addition to the new Tizona Universidad de Burgos project for the 2022-2023 season. He is a young 22-year-old forward trained in the lower categories of the Ourense Basketball Club and who comes from the LEB Gold League where he played last season with Juaristi.
Seoane played for Ourense B between 2015 and 2017 in the EBA League where he averaged 12 points and 6 rebounds per game. In August 2017, the forward moved to UCAM Murcia, playing in its EBA League affiliate where he averaged 13 points and 5 rebounds per game, with an average of 13 credits.
In the summer of 2019, he signed for CB Peixefresco Marín, a team recently promoted to LEB Oro on loan where he hardly had any minutes, with only six minutes per game and two points on average.
In 2020 he joined the Basket Navarra of LEB Plata, also on loan from the Murcian team where he recovered the numbers of the past with more than 13 points per game, five rebounds and 15 PIR credits in about 30 minutes of play per game, sharing a locker room with Peter Stumer.
Last season at Oro, the forward played fourteen minutes per game and averaged four points and two rebounds.
Seoane had “no doubt that he wanted to play here”. “When they showed me the project and I saw the objectives that the club had and how it worked, I had no doubt that I wanted to play here, I think it is the step that my career needs to continue improving as a player”, he points out.
One of the main reasons that he joined Tizona was coach Diego Ocampo: “I know Diego and his way of working. I know that he is a very demanding coach who knows how to get the most out of his players and I know that he is going to come in handy for me”, he explains.
As for what it can contribute, Rodrigo Seoane exposes “work, discipline and desire to grow day by day”. He also adds that “it is the DNA that the whole team has to have this season”.
“At the group level the objective is clear, we want to move up in category”, points out the forward who sets a more humble personal objective: “to continue working both physically and technically to be able to continue improving and to be able to give my maximum level as a player”.
Seoane also wanted to send a message to the fans and “invites them to come fill El Plantío from matchday 1”. For them “we are going to work very hard and we need the fans to be that sixth player in each home game so that we can all enjoy together what we like so much”.
