USC 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, according to the university.
“What an unfortunate set of circumstances for Ebo (Dibba’s nickname),” said head coach Lamont Paris in a release. “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 played four seasons for Coastal Carolina, averaging 8.2 points, 5.2 assists, and 4.8 rebounds per game during his time with the Chanticleers. He participated in 90 games, making 87 starts, missing most of the 2019-2020 season with a knee injury he suffered in CCU’s loss to Baylor during the Myrtle Beach Invitational. Dibba is also an outstanding student as he was named to the Coastal Carolina President’s List in 2021 for a 4.0 GPA.
