N'diaye, an active 230-pounder, runs the floor, rebounds and blocks shots. But his offensive game is far from polished.
"He's a big energy guy who brings a lot of things to the table defensively and rebounding," Sy said. "Hamady has to make a lot of strides this year with his offensive game, and we're hoping to help him establish some good low post moves that he can use them in college."
N'diaye has only played two years of organized basketball prior to enrolling at Stone Ridge, and Sy thinks his upside is significant. "He is the type of kid that will get better for sure," he said.
"He's going to draw more and more interest because he's the type of guy who gives 100 percent on the court," Sy said.
