K-State adds graduate transfer Mawdo Sallah in hoops

June 21, 2017

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State has added graduate transfer Mawdo Sallah from Mount St. Mary’s to provide some front-court depth following the dismissal of Isaiah Maurice from the men’s basketball program.

Wildcats coach Bruce Weber said Tuesday that Sallah, a 6-foot-9 forward, had signed a financial aid agreement. He will be eligible to play immediately and have two seasons with Kansas State.

Sallah helped Mount St. Mary’s to the Northeast Conference regular-season and tournament titles as a sophomore last season. The Mountaineers defeated New Orleans in a First Four game in the NCAA Tournament before losing to top-seeded Villanova in the first round.

Sallah was born in Gambia and moved to the U.S. when he was a child.
