How badly does Kentucky need Mohamed Bamba next season?

03/30/2017 08:00 PM

Mohamed Bamba was one of the most dominant players on the floor in last night’s McDonald’s All-American game. The five-star center had 17 points, five rebounds and four blocks. He displayed elite athleticism around the rim on both sides of the floor. The Kentucky guys were right there cheering him on, as they still work to get him to come to Lexington, where he may be very needed.

Kentucky will likely lose most of its star power to the NBA draft, making Bamba’s addition even more important for Kentucky. Does Kentucky need Mohamed Bamba next season if they want to be serious title contenders?
