DraftNasty spotlights Texas C Mohamed Bamba: ‘As the World Turns’

Former Texas center Mohamed Bamba brings an underrated game and 7-foot-10-inch wingspan (the longest ever recorded ) to the NBA.  The former Westtown School (Pa.) product stood out  for the PSA Cardinals in his matchup with current Kentucky center Nick Richards during the 2016 Nike EBYL Peach Jam.  The performance was only a sign of things to come.  As a freshman for the Longhorns, Bamba averaged 12.5 points, 10.9 rebounds and finished second in the nation in blocked shots per game (3.7).  Along the way, he shot 54.1-percent from the field.  We went inside the game of the 2017-18 1st team All-Big 12 defender during our visit to check him in July 2016.
