  follow us on Facebook Twitter

Today's Sudanese college players such as Marier 'Mike' Angui (211-C), Longar Longar (210-C) or Bil Duany (201-G/F) will be joined soon by more promising countrymen , as with Luol Deng (201-F-85, college: Duke) and Deng Gai (206-F-82, college: Fairfield) in the NBA, the trend of US and Canadian Colleges to sign big men out of the Sudan is gibing the next generation a chance to showcase their skills in front of a bigger audience.Major colleges got an eye on players like Nyal “Mac” Koshwal , a 6-9 post player who is making big strides at recently founded Boys to Men Prep in Chicago.

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.
