Following the FIBA Africa U20 Championship in Dakar, all scouts thought Mohamed Hdidane would have a great future.
Selected for the 2004 Basketball Without Borders Africa, he then entered Winchendon (Mass) High School and was named for the World Select Team of the Nike Hoop Summit in 2005.
The interest of universities was growing but a four-year college stint was considered as too long for his career expectations.
So he decided to come back to Tunisia at Stade Nabeulien at the age of 19 in 2005.
He is seen as a half-god by fans!
Technically, he is one of the best players on Tunisia’s National Team and has perfect ball handling skills.
Standing 206cm tall, he is a real forward.
His only issue is his free-throw shooting, a problem that bothered him during the 2009 FIBA Africa Championship when he hit just 31 percent from the free-throw line.
The FIBA World Championship is a second chance for him to show his talent to the World for the man Nabeul people have nicknamed “Hamoudi”.
