B. Braun Sheffield Sharks announced the signing of Jordan Ratinho for the remainder of the 2020-21 BBL season over the weekend.
The 6’5″ guard graduated from the University of San Francisco last May after spending four years playing with the Men’s Basketball programme, starting every game his senior season.
Ratinho started his professional career earlier this season in Herford, Germany but after only playing two matches the team’s season was cancelled, making him available.
“It was unfortunate what happened in Germany but I’m excited to continue my pro career in Sheffield,” said Ratinho.
“The first week of practice has been great, the guys and coaching staff have been helping me fit in nicely. There’s a lot of talent here, I can’t wait to start playing games.”
The first year pro out of Concord, California averaged 8.9 pts 1.9 reb 1.1 ast last season with the San Francisco Dons.
Head Coach Atiba Lyons is delighted with the addition of Ratinho, adding, “It’s great to have Jordan on board. We had a spot to fill and he will really add some more needed depth to our roster. So far he’s integrated well in training, has a great shooting touch.”
