His father, Jordi, played for Joventut Badalona during six years and young Pau was so eager to follow his footsteps that he famously joined the club's youth team at the age of four. Although Ribas got off to such an early start and suited up for the senior national team in several warm-up games over the years, EuroBasket 2015 will be his first major tournament, eight years after winning silver at the 2007 U20 European Championship. Ribas can play at both guard positions and possesses an amazing ability to create separation and pull up for the mid-range jumper, with an invariably high conversion rate. His last season at Valencia Basket was also the best in his career as he was voted in the Liga Endesa First Team. Ribas will return to his native city after EuroBasket, taking his talents to FC Barcelona.
