Year: 2020-21

Europrobasket player Adebayo Babalola, 6’4″ Guard/Forward from Morningside NAIA D2, signed for the 2020-21 season in Portugal. Adebayo attended Europrobasket’s European Summer League in June of 2019. A year after his attendance, Europrobasket staff signed Adebayo to his first contract in Europe. During his time here in Spain he was not able to receive an offer to start his career. Due to his excellent performance, great character and die hard work ethic, Europrobasket staff continued offering Adebayo, or Bayo as his teammates call him, to many openings throughout the 2019-20 season. All attempts were unsuccessful except one, which was over a year later! Hard work, good communication and determination from both Adebayo and Europrobasket ended with the beginning of a professional career in Europe! Read Adebayo’s full basketball journey Q&A here:
