Former FAMU player Nasir Core making noise in the Big3

Since leaving the Highest of Seven Hills, former Florida A&M basketball player Nasir Core has plied his craft all over the world, playing for Achada Grande Volcanico in the Cape Verdian Praia League. Core helped the team ascend to the league’s second-best team and made it to the league’s semifinal round. In March 2022 he joined BC Teuta Durrës of the Albanian Basketball Superliga, the highest division of the Albanian Basketball League. His impact was felt immediately, as he helped Teuta win its fourth Albanian Supercup. Along the way, Core racked up several individual honors including Finals MVP, Player of the Year, Giard of the Year, and Import of the Year. 

Ice Cube’s BIG3 has allowed the FAMU product the opportunity to put his prodigious talents on display in front of a domestic audience. Taken 10th overall by 3’s Company, Core is averaging 12.0 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists on the season. In 3’s Company’s Week 4 matchup against the Ghost Ballers, Core turned in an electrifying performance scoring a team-high 15 points, including hitting the game-winning shot. 


Along with former NBA player and certified walking bucket Michael Beasley, Core has helped lead 3’s Company to a 3-1 record through the first 4 weeks of the season. 

Next up for Core and 3’s Company is a faceoff with the Joe Johnson-led Triplets, who are also 3-1 on July 14 with tip-off scheduled for 11 pm EST.
