Player Bio

Bol Manute Bol was born in 1999 in Khartoum, Sudan. His mother is Ajoke Deng and his father is the late Manute Bol. Manute played 10 seasons in the NBA for the Bullets, Warriors, 76ers and the Heat. His father was also known for his humanitarian efforts in his native Sudan. Due to political troubles in Sudan, Bol Bol and his family migrated from Sudan to Egypt and finally the United States in 2002. Bol Bol was raised in Connecticut and Kansas. He played his high school basketball at Blue Valley Northwest High School in Overland Park, Kansas, then Bishop Miege High School in Roeland Park, Kansas, and finally Findlay Prep in Henderson, Nevada. Bol Bol is one of 11 children. You can follow the tall center on both Twitter and Instagram (@BolBol). Bol's collegiate career was as brief as he is tall. The 7-foot-2 center played in just nine games for Oregon before injuring his foot and missing the rest of the season. Even in that handful of contests, Bol showed off a sweet jumper. He scored at least 12 points in every game and had four double-doubles. Manute's son had 23 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks in his second game in a win over Eastern Washington. The center had his best scoring game in a loss to Texas Southern, scoring 32 points to go along with 11 boards. He also used his size well on defense by recording at least three blocks in six games. On the season, Bol averaged 21.0 points on 56.1 percent shooting, 9.6 rebounds and 2.7 blocks. He also garnered a 52.0 percent success rate on three-point attempts. The second-generation basketball star played his last game on Dec. 12 and declared for the 2019 NBA Draft soon thereafter.
