BAMBA ON AND OFF THE COURT
Last season, Bamba made an immediate impact in his one season with the 49ers after being a graduate transfer from Coastal Carolina. Bamba, who started every game last year, ranked among the Conference USA leaders in blocked shots with a team-leading 26 blocks. He recorded six double-figure scoring games, including a season-high 16 points in the 49ers' road win at Marshall, January 16.
