The former player, under Coach Pena, not only had an outstanding career here at Pensacola State College but South Carolina as well. The long-range sharpshooter has now set his sights on a bigger stage. After graduating from South Carolina he has been in the spotlight playing in Las Vegas at the National 3X3U Championship and participating in different NBA workouts. All the hard work paid off this week when he signed with the Orlando Magic!
We wish our former Pirate and well-deserving young man the very best moving forward. Congratulations Hassani!
Here’s what Coach Pena had to say about the news, “I’m truly proud of Hassani and how his career ended at South Carolina. I think he represented himself, his family, and certainly Pensacola State in an outstanding way. His opportunity with the Orlando Magic is like a dream come true for him. I’m excited for him, and we wish him the best…hopefully, this is just the beginning of a great career.”
