More Accolades for Ndoye

NetScouts Basketball has named Nodye their Co-Player of the Week.  It’s nice to see the big man get some recognition after some great individual efforts, but more importantly, two conference victories.

Another big man led his team to a pair of wins across the country, as Youssou Ndoye pushed St. Bonaventure past George Mason and Saint Joseph’s. The Dakar, Senegal native has been named NetScouts Basketball’s International Player of the Week for games from January 12th to January 18th.

The 7-foot senior posted 28 points, 13 rebounds, and three blocks in a 75-55 win over George Mason. He shot an outstanding 9-of-11 from the field and 10-of-11 from the free throw line. Ndoye then contributed 15 points, six rebounds, five assists, and three blocks on a perfect 4-of-4 shooting against Saint Joseph’s. He averaged 21.5 points, 9.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 3.0 blocks per game in back-to-back wins while shooting 86.7 percent (13-of-15) from the floor and 81.0 percent (17-of-21) from the charity stripe.

St. Bonaventure has started 3-2 in Atlantic 10 play with Ndoye averaging 11.7 points along with team-highs of 10.7 rebounds and 2.9 blocks per game. The Bonnies will need inspired play from Ndoye to spark them to some upset victories and contend for a finish in the upper-half of the conference.
