Gamecock transfer Dibba to miss 2022-23 season with torn achilles
COLUMBIA, S.C. — Transfer guard Ebrima Dibba will miss the 2022-23 season due to an Achilles injury suffered in on-court summer workouts. The Bredäng, Sweden, native had successful surgery and has already begun the rehab process.
“What an unfortunate set of circumstances for Ebo,” said head coach Lamont Paris. “He is an extraordinary young man who has worked incredibly hard to get to this point. It will be this work ethic, as well as his positive attitude, that will spearhead his recovery. He has already begun attacking his rehabilitation with a determination I have not seen in a long time.”
Dibba averaged 8.2 points, 5.2 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game over four seasons at Coastal Carolina (2018-22). He played in 90 games, making 87 starts. Dibba is also an outstanding student as he was named to the Coastal Carolina President’s List in 2021 for a 4.0 GPA.
