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.

In just 23 minutes of action, Bamba recorded a team-high 15 points on an efficient 6-of-9 shooting performance, along with 8 rebounds, 4 blocks, 2 assists and 1 steal. Bamba’s 4 blocks of matching the freshman debut record set by James Banks last season.
