SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- With Kentucky coach John Calipari, North Carolina coach Roy Williams and Texas coach Shaka Smart among those on hand, Mohamed Bamba put on a Hassan Whiteside-like show on Sunday at the Hoophall Classic.
The 7-foot junior from Harlem went for a triple-double of 13 points, 16 rebounds and 10 blocks as Westtown (Pa.) dominated Udoka Azubuike and Potters House Christian (FL), 53-35, by outscoring the Florida school 35-7 in the second half.
Bamba said he was especially motivated to go against Azubuike, who postponed his scheduled college announcement from Sunday. The 6-11 Azubuike is considering North Carolina, Kansas and Florida State. Kansas assistant Jerrance Howard was also on hand. Through his coach, Azubuike (6 points, 9 rebounds) declined to speak with reporters following the game.
