The BBL’s average top point scorer will be back in Raiders Green next season as he puts pen to paper and signs for the 19/20 season. Rashad joined Raiders late in the season in November and immediately showed his BBL experience scoring 27 points in his first game for Raiders, against Glasgow Rocks before going on to lead the league in average points per game with 20.04 points.
Hassan helped Raiders reach their first playoffs in 7 seasons and really took some games by the scruff of the neck including a 115-100 win in Raiders December unbeaten run scoring 15 from 16 shots finishing the game with 31 points, 10 rebounds and a Field Goal percentage of 94.
Rashad is Coach James’ second signing for the 19/20 season and will join Josh Wilcher as part of the Raiders team to build on their successes from this season.
