Iserlohn Kangaroos: Samuel Mpacko will continue to hunt for baskets for the Iserlohn Kangaroos in the future

The Iserlohn Kangaroos are happy about the extension of Samuel Mpacko’s contract, the 25-year-old will also play for the Waldstadt team in the BARMER 2nd Basketball Bundesliga next season.

The fast-paced guard came to the Kangaroos from Düsseldorf before the past season and was able to convince with strong scoring and good defense in his first season in Iserlohn. Due to injuries in the team, Mpacko had to play more often in the point guard position, which he was not used to, but showed his adaptability and impressed with good performances.

In his first season in the Kangaroos outfit, the shooting guard averaged 12.8 points and 3.1 assists per game while also having the second-most minutes on the team. Mpacko is an agile player with excellent ball handling, who can rarely be calculated both with a drive to the basket and with a 3-pointer for the opponent.

In addition to his skills as a scorer, he also has playmaker qualities and cuts a fine figure on the defensive with 1.5 steals per game. Despite his height of 1.87 meters, he also has an impressive jumping ability, which means that he already provided a number of highlights at ring level in the past season.

“The support of the fans and the trust of the organization helped me to progress last season and take my game to a new level,” said Samuel Mpacko. “I am proud to be part of the Iserlohn Kangaroos in the coming season and I will do everything to support the team and achieve our goals.”

“Samuel Mpacko proved himself last season and showed that he has the potential to dominate at this level,” commented head coach Dennis Shirvan. “His ability on the pitch is remarkable and we are confident that he will continue to play an important role next season.”

Managing Director Michael Dahmen added: “The signing of Samuel Mpacko is a clear sign of our ambition and our confidence in his talent. Not only his scoring skills, but also his calm and level-headed manner make him a valuable part of our team.”

With Samuel Mpacko, the second building block for the squad for the 2023/24 season has now been laid.
