Texas Longhorns freshman forward Mohamed Bamba made his collegiate debut on Friday against Northwestern State and certainly looked the part of the 5-star prospect he arrived in Austin as.
Following a fairly dominant two-way effort in the Longhorns 105-59 victory, Bamba earned Big 12 Co-Newcomer of the Week honors, along with Kansas’ Marcus Garrett, the conference announced on Monday.
