Mamadou Ndiaye officially measured 7’4 (297lbs). The Senegalese Ndiaye’s 8’1 wingspan was 11 inches greater than that of the second longest: 6’8 2014 star Cliff Alexander, whom he frequently matched up against had a 7’2 wingspan.
Playing among the nation’s top 20 high school big men at the 2012 Amar’e Stoudemire Skills Academy, including Chris Walker (FLA) and joined by the top 20 high school point guards (from Deron Williams Skills Academy), Ndiaye (Brethren Christian 2013, Huntington Beach, CA )was literally the center of attention as he blocked shots, grabbed rebounds, and dunked on elite defenders.
Ndiaye received special coaching from John Lucas and even his coaches found it difficult posting up against his big frame!
