I think that’s called a Mutombo

Duquesne needs to learn how to box out!  St. Bonaventure apparently has improved in that area in the past 25 years.  Heh.

I'd like to see a block chart showing where his blocks were like they do for shots. One was pretty far from the basket.

What constitutes an official block?  I could swear that French had more than 7 blocks.

It's the most missed stat in the game. A block is basically a deflected shot attempt that the statistician remembers to record. Before the internet, I would sometimes watch a game video and chart my own stats for a player or two. It was very common for a player to be credited with up to 3 less blocks than they actually had. One or two missed blocks was almost the norm.

Should be called an Olajuwon or a Hakeem.  He had 11 of them, Mutombo had 10, Robinson 9.

The jump ball call towards the end of the game cost Hasahn 2 blocks.

He was credited for the first one but not the one resulting in a held ball.

French almost got a block with his foot. Unfortunately they called French for a foul on the play but from my vantage his foot got all ball. 😀

even with his Shaq ish line work he seems destined to get at least as much a shot as Bess got this year in NBA. Did not think that at this time last year for JB but since he got as much attention as he did HF #s have to draw a bit of attention and he's got 90% of his junior year + next year. 

BTW looks like they've modernized roster page!

Has’ reminds me a lot of NBA Hall of Famer, Wes Unseld. Same height, weight, and bulk, with quick ups, and even more strength. Has’ might already have more ball skills than Unseld did. Unseld was strictly a rebounder and finisher from two feet. To his credit, when compared to Has’, he was a career 63% FT shooter.

Hasahn’s one on one ball skills are terrific, he has great hands, and motors up and down the floor. It amazes me when he blocks a shot on one end, and finishes the break on the other. I realize the talent level and athleticism in the NBA  has improved over the years, but I’m saying they’ll be a place in the league for Has’. Every team can use a full-grown werewolf.

Interesting note - Wes Unseld is Earl Austin Jr.’s uncle.

Unseld was an unreal passer as well. Also could body up much larger players as he was only about 6'6. Has not even close.

I didn't see this posted elsewhere and thought it would be appropriate here. Nice article on French. I had never heard this before...

"Pushing French throughout his robust career at SLU has been junior guard Jordan Goodwin. The pair were looking at SLU and played each other in a high school game. After the game French told Goodwin about Saint Louis saying, “if you go I’ll go.”"

not saying this didnt happen but i dont recall althoff playing any team from out east.    no way that french came to the metro east area to play a high school game.  i would have remembered that.   

could it have been during an AAU game when they were both still in high school?
