UNLV Lands a Big Man! Brice Massamba

This is just another reason I love Lon Kruger, he is getting quality players for UNLV. We have moved past the point of having to raid the JUCO cupboard for guys that have gray histories, to recruiting serious Division I talent. Here’s to you Lon Kruger.

Brice is a 6’10 255 pound center who can shoot it from 16 feet and handle the ball down low. I also think I should mention that this is a massive upgrade from Tree, whose scholarship Brice will be taking. Next year will be a new era for UNLV basketball as we will have a front line of Beas and Massamba (that just sounds cool).

This also highlights that Lon Kruger has seemed to be able to establish a steady pipeline of African players, as Brice is from Congo. Also he is currently attended Findlay Prep which is a prep school, new to Las Vegas, that is loaded with D1 talent. If we can maintain these two pipelines UNLV’s future will only be brighter.
