Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Chris Beard had quite the praise for Mo Bamba after his Texas Tech Red Raiders lost to the Texas Longhorns on Wednesday night.

Bamba had 15 points, 11 rebounds, and five blocks in Texas’ 67-58 win over Tech. That prompted Beard, the Texas Tech coach, to comment on Bamba’s blocking ability:

Bamba, a star freshman, is averaging a double-double this season and over four blocks per game. He topped out with eight blocks against Kansas earlier in conference play, so the comment is well deserved.
