Baylor Bears-ex Devontè Bandoo signed a contract to play with the Saskatchewan Rattlers, which is part of the Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL).
Bandoo signed the contract a day after the Bears reached the Final Four for the first time, defeating the Arkansas Razorbacks.
Bandoo and the Rattlers begin the season June 7 against the Edmonton Stingers.
Bandoo was part of the Bears’ 26-4 record a season ago, one in which the Bears spent a good portion of the Big 12 season as the nation’s No. 1 team. Bandoo was named the Big 12 Sixth Man of the Year, as he shot a team-high 38.5 percent from 3-point range. Bandoo averaged 7.6 points and 3.6 rebounds per game for the Bears, and had career averages of 8.1 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 1.4 assists.
“I’m excited to be a part of the Rattlers organization”, said Bandoo in a release sent by the team. “I can’t wait to play and learn from the coaching staff and my teammates. I look forward to competing for a CEBL Championship with the Ratters.”
The Mississauga, Ontario, native found his way to Baylor after he played two seasons at Hutchinson Community College in Kansas. There, he led HCC to a 2017 Division I NJCAA national title. He came up huge in that championship game, scoring 22 points against Eastern Florida State College.
There are seven teams in the CEBL.
