Ofori, who redshirted with the University of Regina Cougars men’s basketball team last season, has never practised with his soon-to-be teammates on the squad representing St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
“I’m just kind of hopping in there,” Ofori said Friday. “I’m taking my basketball IQ with me and just kind of playing the game.”
If all goes according to plan, Ofori will bring what he learns back to the Cougars for the 2015-16 Canada West season.
Ofori, 23, was born in Montreal and has lived in Canada his entire life. But his mother hails from Bequia — one of the islands in the Grenadines.
