I had recently the opportunity to meet Sudanese player Buai Tut (193-G) who is now enrolled at Grossmont CC near San Diego.
An athletic guard with all the tools to be a future pro player in Europe, the 6-4 sophmore is doing quite well after a shaky start into his college basketball career.
At New Mexico Military Institute, he wasn't getting any exposure on the court which led to his transfer to the Westcoast-school and to better days with the Griffins.
Now in his final junior-college season , he is doing his thing by showcasing his skills to four-year schools and is doing quite well so far.
At the Grossmont Tourney, he averaged 10 ppg , 6.6 rpg and 2 spg for the Griffins , which is quite impressive for a player that is not the first scoring option of Coach Weber.
Santa Barbara CC Invitational, he was a lock on defense with eight rebounds, two steals and three blocks against Santa Barbara CC (7 points); 10 rebounds, three steals and one block against Canada College (6 points and 5 assists) and nine rebounds, five steals and three blocks in the third game against Allan Hancock CC (6 points 3 assists).
Two schools (one of the a NCAA D1-school) are currently recruiting him, and I think this kid is going to have a nice career with any team that is going to pursuit his services thanks to his willingness to give everything on the court for his team and being a role model for other Sudanese players in the U.S.

I am going to keep you posted about his progress.

Martorell welcomes back Mayot - 1 Year ago
B.C. Martorell Solvay (EBA) inked 19-year old Sudanese center Deng Mayot (218-97). It is actually his comeback to Martorell as he has played here before. Mayot is not a newcomer in Spanish League where he played most recently at ICL Manresa in Spanish Liga Endesa. Liga Endesa was a little too high level for him, where in two Liga Endesa games he did not score anything and had only 3 rebounds. EBA will be definitely a better match and he can see more playing time. Mayot also played that se...   [read more]
