Mariners men's basketball add mbappe to roster!

August 13th, 2008

Mariners men's basketball coach Tony Bryce is very pleased to announce
the committment of 6'2" guard Banimb Mbappe for the 2008-2009 season.
Mbappe played last season for the Ballenas Whalers of Parksville. He
is a very explosive athlete and has the ability to do it all. He
averaged 39 points/game in the 2008 AAA Island Championships, which is
almost unheard of. But Bryce believes he has so much more to offer than just scoring.
"I am very curious to see him with other talented players around him.
He can score, but I also think he sees the floor very well and has the
ability to break people down with the dribble, thus create scoring
opportunities for his teammates."

Mbappe is currently back home with family and friends in Spain as
coach Bryce finalizes the necessary paper work.
But, there is no doubt coach is excited for his arrival.
"I felt we needed an athlete on the perimter and Banimb is exactly
that. He will definately add some excitement, because he does so many
things well, and is extremely explosive"
