Big basketball update
The Auburn men, strapped for size since Mamadou N'Diaye graduated six years ago, finally signed a tall player today. His name is Boubacar Sylla. He's 7-foot-1, reportedly weighs 275 pounds and averaged 2.4 points per game as a high-school junior last year.
Coach Jeff Lebo, obviously overcome with emotion after finally landing a BIG GUY, leads off his official release today with this gem:
"We think Boubacar has a tremendous body, and he has been playing basketball for a long time," Lebo said.
Swell. Sylla sounds just awesome.
