Duquesne Basketball Get Commits From Transfer Forwards Fousseyni and Hassan Drame
The Duquesne Dukes picked up two players on Wednesday that will no doubt be a big help in next season’s front court.
Former LaSalle forwards Fousseyni and Hassan Drame announced that they’ve made the decision to transfer and player their final season of college basketball at Duquesne.
Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.
Fousseyni and Hassan Drame are both 6-foot-7, 200-pound forwards, who will bring four years of on-court experience to Duquesne head coach Keith Dambrot’s program.
Prior to last season at LaSalle, the Drame brothers played at St. Peter’s and were integral members of their Elite Eight run in 2022.
PSN is told that both players are very diversified, will bring toughness to the team, are great people and teammates and have gotten better every season that they’ve played.
Fousseyni Drame averaged 8.8 points, 5.3 rebounds and shot 43% from the field in 26 minutes of action last season. He averaged 7.5 points and 6.8 rebounds per game in 23.5 minutes of playing time in his final two seasons at St. Peter’s.
Hassan Drame is a similar player to his brother and posted similar stats, as he put up 6.4 points and 4.3 rebounds last season in 21.9 minutes per game. He also averaged 6 points and 5.5 rebounds per game in his last two seasons with St. Peter’s.
The Drame brothers are from Bamako, Mali and are friends with current Duquesne forward Halil Barre.
The Dukes were looking to add to their front court after losing Joe Reese, Austin Rotroff and R.J. Gunn to graduation.
With the addition of these two players, look for Duquesne to still try and add another big man to their front court and a shooting guard.
Headed in the right direction!!!
