This past week, ESPN basketball analyst Fran Fraschilla visited Morgantown for a coaching clinic hosted by West Virginia. Fraschilla did some teaching and also was able to check out the current version of the Mountaineers.
And one player especially stuck out to the analyst:
.@WVUhoops has a diamond in rough in 6-8, 240 Fr. Sagaba Konate--a young Al Horford. Doesn't know what he doesn't know yet.— Fran Fraschilla (@franfraschilla) October 8, 2016
That's right, Fran Fraschilla called true freshman Sagaba Konate "a young Al Horford." In case you didn't know, Al Horford was a two-time national champion at the University of Florida and a four-time NBA All-Star.
There have been some rumblings around Morgantown that Konate has looked very impressive, and Fraschilla's take helps to confirm that.
Here are a few other things Fraschilla had to say about his trip:
Not saying he's Buddy Hield but @WVUhoops say Jevon Carter has lived in gym all year. VERY underrated backcourt w/Miles, Meyers, Phillip.— Fran Fraschilla (@franfraschilla) October 8, 2016
Can we get the season started already?
