Ducks get commitment from former Stetson center Mahamadou Diawara

Dana Altman filled out his final roster spot on Wednesday afternoon, picking up a big man to bolster the depth in the frontcourt.

The Oregon Ducks got a commitment from former Stetson center Mahamadou Diawara, a 6-foot-10, 250-pound transfer who averaged 4.1 points and 4.4 rebounds in 30 games with five starts at Stetson last season.

Diawara is entering his fifth-year senior season. He shot an impressive 53.9% from the field, but struggled from the free throw line, shooting just  58.7%. His most impressive game of the year came in the College Basketball Invitational, where he put up 18 points and 20 rebounds in a loss to Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

The Ducks have added a number of transfers this offseason, but most of them came in the shooting guard variety as Altman looks to better his team’s three-point proficiency. Adding someone like Diawara offers great depth at the center position, behind both N’Faly Dante and Nate Bittle going into the year.
