Mamadou N'Diaye was a first round NBA draft pick from Senegal. The CCU assistant coach learned about America and Division I basketball from Cliff Ellis and he's using his global connections to bring a foreign flavor to the CCU roster. Three African natives and a Macedonian are part of the 2012-13 Chants.
El Hadji-Ndieguene is a junior college transfer, while Michel Enanga, Badou Diagne and Uros Lsjekovic are all freshman with great potential to be dominant big men in the Big South over the next four years. More impressive than their upside is their adjustment to the United States and their grasp of the English language. All four foreigners speak more than two languages.
