VIDEO: Mamadou Ndiaye, 7-foot-5 High School Basketball Player, is Unstoppable
In 2010, Ndiaye was discovered by scouts in his native Senegal. Sports bloggers have been following the behemoth for a couple months, but new game footage has emerged, showing the team's not-so-secret weapon in action.
Ndiaye is so dominant at the high school level, it's almost like watching a cat toy with a mouse, except that the mouse might have a better chance of acquiring a tiny shotgun to defend himself against a cat than high school defenders have of stopping Ndiaye. It's like having Secretariat in a pony race. It's like bringing a tommy gun to the OK corral. It's like having Hillary Clinton and Colin Powell on a high school model UN squad. It's like ... well, you get the picture.
