Oumar Ballo is a strong, athletic center that has played well in his role off the bench at Arizona this season.  He played last year at Gonzaga during the 2020-21 season before transferring, and he recently scored 21 points in his team’s January 20th win over Stanford.  He is a high-motor big man that could project to be a solid rim protector in the NBA.
