The NBBL season is only a week old but we had our first player movement of the season already. Cudjoe Masuka gets the call up from the Advanced Division to play in the Elite "Rise" Division.
Cudjoe Masuka played his first NBBL game on Wednesday night in the Advanced Division with the HaveNots. He displayed his ability to get to the rim and finish strong but what was most impressive to the onlookers was his ability to defend the perimeter and the rim.
Hamilton Hitmen's team captains were present at Week 1 of the Advanced Division and shortly after the game asked Cudjoe to play with them in the Elite Division. Team captains stated, "Cudjoe's energy and athleticism makes him a great fit for what we are trying to do with our team this year. Offensively he is a natural but he's very impressive on the defensive side of the ball. He's able to guard multiple positions which is very hard to find."
The following night Cudjoe suited up for the Hamilton Hitmen LIVE on Cable 14 and displayed his ability to play at a higher level. Cudjoe finished the game with 9 points, 6 rebounds and 2 steals.
Cudjoe Maskua becomes the first athlete to be called up this season and as per NBBL Rules will play the remainder of the season with both teams in the Elite "Rise" Division (Hamilton Hitmans) and Advanced Division (HaveNots).
