Former USC Upstate men’s basketball player Babatunde Olumuyiwa recently re-signed a contract to continue his professional basketball career overseas with CB Clavijo Logrono of the Spanish LEB Gold League.
Olumuyiwa was a member of two teams at Upstate that competed in back-to-back ASUN Tournament semifinals in 2012-13 and 2013-14. The Athens, Ga. native played for the Spartans from 2010-14 and appeared in 119 games during his four-year career.
This will be the second season that Olumuyiwa will be playing with CB Clavijo after appearing in 30 LEB Gold games last season. He contributed 8.8 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game last season as the club posted an 11-19 overall record.
Olumuyiwa began his professional career in 2014-15 with Cerveceros of the Chihuahua Vive basketball league in Mexico. He excelled that season after being selected to participate in the Mexican Chihuahua Vive All-Star Game.
He will enter the 2016-17 campaign as the lone center on CB Clavijo’s roster, led by head coach Antonio Perez.
