Sounds like a solid replacement for Trey Mcgowens
The 6-foot-4, 180-pound shooting guard started all 33 games last season and averaged 10.6 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.8 assists while shooting 35.2% from 3-point range and 82.3% at the free-throw line.
"Defense is really my thing," Bandoumel said. "Obviously, I can score, but I really pride myself in locking down whoever I'm guarding and taking them out of the game. I also pride myself on my leadership. I try to be a vocal leader and lead by example in everything I do.
Emmanuel Bandoumel promises not to be nice.
As his older brother, Djim, once told him, “The game is not always cute. It’s dirty.”
“That’s what I do defensively,” Bandoumel told The World-Herald this week. “Staying low, fighting through screens, pressuring the ball full court, that’s what I love doing.”
That’s also something the Huskers, who have ranked 11th or lower in conference-only defensive efficiency for three straight seasons, could use. Bandoumel said assistant coach Adam Howard called him on May 3, his second day in the transfer portal. Coach Fred Hoiberg wasn’t far behind.
