Bourama Sidibe came to Italy as something of an unknown quantity.
Had he recovered from the knee tendinitis that limited him his freshman and sophomore years? Could he be a factor in SU’s zone and on the backboards?
Through four games here, albeit against inferior competition, Sidibe answered those questions with a resounding “yes.”
He grabbed 17 rebounds in Sunday’s Syracuse win over Virtus Roma. In four games here, he’s averaged 12 rebounds per contest. And he has played somewhere between 20-25 minutes per outing.
