Position: Shooting Guard

City: Porto, Portugal

Year: 2021-22

Malik Jacobs, 6’3″ American Shooting Guard from Urbana University NCAA DII, signed in Portugal for the 2021-22 basketball season. Malik joined the EuroProBasket program in September following a two year hiatus from playing collegiate basketball. His senior year (2018-19) Malik put up solid stats averaging 16 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 2 assists while averaging 47% from the two and 40% from the three. Malik struggled to get interest from professional teams overseas despite a solid performance in NCAA D2, which led him to attend EuroProBasket. He was noticed by multiple teams during his time in the program but nothing solidified until nearly two months after he returned home. EuroProBasket staff continued to offer Malik and a team from Portugal made him an offer which he couldn’t refuse. Malik Jacobs has already played one game with his team and help them to a victory while adding 15 points and 4 rebounds.
