    Good, we need someone who can play. Another project/slow-developing/low-rated big isn't going to cut it.

    Highlights of a recent game (three in a row of Carlton starting at 0:14, including a nice move at 0:20) and then short interview. Still not a lot of tape/reviews on him, but lots of praise coming from scouts is encouraging.

    Big kid there's some things to work with. Would love to see him be a little more ready when arriving than our recent cast but good size, good hands are a great start. When I watched one of the games one thing I noticed was off the ball not a lot of aggression to get in the play which is not lazy but more a problem with many kids. Not all the time he's just inconsistent and when he gets here that will change. Seems like a nice young man and wants to come here, can't help but to root for him to improve and have a great senior year.

    Outside of the obviously strong rebounding numbers the best part of this boxscore is the 4-5 from the charity strike.

    I mean, if he can't beat Eleanor Roosevelt then how's he going to beat UCF?

    Impressive win for DeMatha, that's a pretty good Wheeler team. Jordan Tucker, Darius Perry (UL commit), Jordan Usher (USC commit), and E.J. Montgomery ('18 Auburn commit) commit are serious players.

    Doesn't take much for me to get excited about our recruits. But seems like Carlton is really improving so far, which is great

    Agreed, the whole Lubin comparison was/is ludicrous. Dude appears to be a serious collegiate big man, and best of all, nothing has been put out there to suggest that he was a late arrival to the sport à la Facey, Brimah, and Enoch.

    Can't even imagine Lubin driving like Carlton did in that video against good competition.

    Playing time is available Josh keep working buddy!

    But yeah, a positive article for a change and love the kids attitude. 9/8 to 20/12 at a school like DeMatha is nothing to sneeze about so despite the fact JSM gives him no shot, I like the chances we could get a really nice piece.

    Every time I watch clips of him and read about his development he reminds me more and more of Ochefu, the big who started for Villanova last year. Good size, good hands, good brain, developed a ton from his junior to senior years in HS, and then went on to become a great 4-year player.

    I pray that's what this kid is.

    I will take that right now. The key here would be the brain for basketball. The frame is there to build a strong body, he likes to box and rebound the ball. If he can soak in everything and continue to get better than we have something!

    Lubin had 12 and 9 in his last game. I would be thrilled with those types of numbers as a Sophomore.

    Now that is encouraging. We haven't had a big who was an instinctive dunker around the rim since Adrien. I don't understand it, why our guys try little flip layups and avoid contact, while most of the teams we play power through our guys, get fouled and dunk.

    Speaking of that can anyone explain what he has and how it will effect his career, although much is probably unknown still? I feel bad for the kid, love his enthusiasm on the bench even!

    It is really hard to say without being able to interview and examine him and see his radiographic studies. I had several Marines with a similar diagnosis. Most improved with physical therapy but a couple ended up getting medically boarded out of the military.

    We need Mama to play next year. But, he can still be our MVP this season. Recruit your friend.

    I love Mamadou's game. I pray that he gets healthy and gets to enjoy his college career.
