St. Clare College of Caloocan’s Mohamed Pare has been tapped by Mali to be part of its pool for the 2021 FIBA Afrobasket Qualifiers.

In a report by ServSports, the 23-year-old big man left the country prior to it being placed under enhanced community quarantine back in March.

“This is a big opportunity for his career, so I allowed Mohamed to go home and he promised to return for the next NAASCU season,” St. Clare head coach Jinino Manansala told Anthony Servinio.

Pare’s 2019 campaign in both NAASCU and PBA D-League was sensational, winning the Most Valuable Player plum in the NAASCU. He towed St. Clare to the NAASCU and Foundation Cup crowns as well, averaging 14.8 points and 11.1 rebounds in the PBA’s minor league.

With this, Federation Malienne de Basketball invited the 6-foot-7 center to its pool.

Pare was part of Mali’s 3×3 national team that won the 2015 FIBA Africa Zone II 3×3 Championships.

Mali, ranked 74th in the world, is pooled in Group D together with Nigeria, Rwanda, and Algeria. The first window of the pool will be played from November 27-29.

It is still unknown whether the NAASCU will play out its 20th season. A meeting between its board will take place in June.
