Darrow School Names Associate Director of Athletics

NEW LEBANON, N.Y. — Assane Sene joins The Darrow School as associate director of Athletics, boys basketball coach, French teacher and International Student Coordinator.

As an athletic 7-footer, Sene left his home in Senegal and his place at Seeds Academy to play prep school basketball and improve his academics at a school in Connecticut.  As a highly recruited Division I prospect, Sene chose to attend The University of Virginia. As the starting center at UVA, Sene played alongside future NBA players and made essential contacts in the world of basketball.  Sene's goal after finishing his professional playing career was always to become a coach and to give back to those people and organizations that helped him along the way.  

At The Darrow School, Sene is doing just that. This year, five student-athletes from his former school in Senegal are studying and playing basketball at the New Lebanon prep school. Sene's unique coaching style fits well into Darrow's overall educational program - one that is experiential and hands-on - designed to help all skill levels get better, from the classrooms, laboratories and theater to the fields and basketball court.

National recognition has come early to Darrow’s basketball program. Recently, one of Sene's players was chosen by the NBA Without Borders program to participate in the sixth annual Global Camp to coincide with the NBA All-Star Weekend in Chicago. BWBGC, organized by the NBA in conjunction with FIBA, is a basketball development and community outreach program for elite high school players from around the world interested in promoting positive social change in the areas of education, health, friendship, and peace.
