August 21, 2015

The University of Hawaii Men’s Basketball Team announced today the addition of Swedish guard Sheriff Drammeh to the program.

“Being able to continue to play the game at such a beautiful school as the University of Hawaii is a blessing,” said Drammeh, whose sister Binta is an all-star professional player in Sweden. “I believe that going to UH is the best way for me to take my game to the next level with the help of a great coaching staff. After visiting the beautiful island and meeting the friendly people in Hawaii, I knew it was the place for me. I am really excited about arriving in Hawaii, meeting my new teammates and getting to work.”

Drammeh prepped at Igelstavikens Gymnasium in Sweden and played club ball for Sodertalje, but made his mark on the international stage with Sweden’s youth national team. He starred for the U18 squad at the 2014 European Championships where he averaged 10 ppg, 6 rpg, and 3.5 apg for the tournament.

Drammeh's international experience also extends to the Albert Schweitzer Tournament, Nordic Championships, Baltic Sea Cup, and the 2012 European Championships with the U16 Swedish national team.

“We are very excited to welcome Sheriff to the Rainbow Warrior basketball family. Sheriff is an exciting player with great defensive instincts,” praised UH Head Coach Eran Ganot of his 6-3 true freshman shooting guard. “His vast international experience will allow him to adapt to the college game. Sheriff is very excited about Hawaii and will fit well with our program. ”

As for the specifics of his offensive game, coach Ganot also provided a quick glimpse of what UH fans can expect.

“Sheriff is a good attacking guard, who can score and make the right decision,” said Ganot.
