Description

Hussein comes into own as Jordan’s young big man

Mohammad Shaher Hussein has been the youngest member of the Jordanian national team for the past two summers.

And now the 22-year-old center is slowly coming into his own and could be called upon to play an important role in the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament.

The 6-foot-10 big man has developed into a force in the Jordan Premiere League where he has regularly come up with double-doubles this season.

With his team lacking in size, it shouldn’t be a surprise if Jordan head coach Tab Baldwin sends the Kuwait native into games against Greece and Puerto Rico.

Besides Hussein, Baldwin only has Zaid AbbasAyman Idais and Ali Zaghab at 6-foot-9 or taller. And Idais will be 34 years old in Venezuela and Alkhas 36 years if the coach calls on them. That means the future is well in the hands of Hussein.

This will be the third major tournament for Hussein, who played one game at the 2010 FIBA World Championship, hitting a three pointer in one minute of action against Germany.

At the 2011 FIBA Asia Championship, Hussein had a bigger role off Baldwin’s bench. He totaled 21 points and 15 rebounds in 43 minutes over six games. His best contest came against Indonesia where he had 10 points and 6 rebounds in 14 minutes. Hussein also had 4 points and 4 rebounds in just six minutes against China in the group stage before hitting for 5 points in 11 minutes against United Arab Emirates.

The former Jordanian youth international has been with Premier League teams since 2008 when he was just 18.

Hussein gained invaluable experience during the 2011-12 Jordanian league season by playing alongside current of former Jordan internationals such as Islam Abbaas, Wesam Al-Sous, Abdallah AbuQoura, Mohammad Hadrab, Mousa Alawadi and Mahmoud Abdeen. 

That knowledge of the veterans’ playing style and his added confidence could make Hussein an integral part of Jordan’s chances to reach the 2012 Olympics for the first time.
