NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. – Three players from the Monroe College men’s basketball 2010 national tournament team have signed professional contracts with European teams.
Djim Bandoumel will play for Forca Lleida in Spain, Tyrone Nared will play for UBC Tigers Hannover in Germany and Randy Dezouvre will play for BC Aarhus in Denmark.
The 6’8” Bandoumel went on to play at the University of Idaho after his career at Monroe ended, while the 6’6” Nared played for the University of Oregon and the 6’4” Dezouvre played for Iona College.
“These players embody the opportunity that is Monroe Mustangs basketball,” said Monroe head coach Jeff Brustad. “Many young athletes have dreams of playing professional ball and don't know how to realize them. But Djim, Ty and Randy showed that it can be done if they start out as Mustangs.”
