Yesterday, IWBF Europe announced two transfers: Mohammadhassan Sayari and Ebrahim Ahmadi were leaving their Iranian clubs, Arak Basketball Assocation and Mokhaberat-Esfahan respectively, for USC München. While USC München has a long history and many past successes, few have come in the past few years. Their last major accomplishment was in 2012 when they were runner ups in the German cup competition. There season is scheduled to get started on October 5.
Ebrahim Ahmadi was part of the Iranian men’s team that finished eighth at this year’s world championships in Incheon, South Korea. He’s been a regular fixture on the Iranian team, representing his country at the 2008 Summer Paralympics, where his team had a 2 – 3 record before being disqualified after refusing to play the United States. His team did play the USA in Incheon, where he scored a number of points. Little other information is available about him, and the Incheon scoring sheets indicate he is a 4.5 point player but their team lists indicate he is a 1.5 point player.
Mohammadhassan Sayari also has some national team experience for Iran that he brings to his new German team. He played in a game against Japan in June of 2013, where he mostly shot from inside the paint and where he had two fouls and 6 points in 21 minutes. Little information is available about his club or how well he did with them.
