Regina has added a potential impact post player in 6’10” Rawane (Pops) Ndiaye, who started his post-secondary career at Indian Hills (Ia.) Juco before securing a D1 ride with the Tennessee Volunteers of the SEC. Unfortunately, after one season (2013-14), the stocky big man tore his ACL and missed the entire 2014-15 season.
Ndiaye, who was born in the Bronx but spent most of high school years at Woodrow Wilson High School in Dallas, Texas, averaged just 0.9 points and 1.1 rebounds per game in 3.3 minutes per game while appearing in 22 contests for the Vols in 2013-14.
With only one season of NCAA eligibility remaining, Ndiaye decided a move up north, giving him another season of eligibility was appealing.
Here is the original recruiting announcement by the Cougars.
