The Senegalese power forward possesses outstanding athletic ability and versatility under the hoop. He is extremely fleet-footed and a quick mover. Strong on the rebound, Ndour is also a reliable three-point shooter. He is a full international and represented his country during the 2014 World Cup in Spain.
Ndour honed his talents in the USA, although he also spent time in Japan when he was starting out (Okayama Gakugeikan High School, in 2011). After being recruited by Monroe College in New York, he took the step up to Ohio University two years later. He became one of Ohio's best players during his two seasons there and was included in the All-Mac Second Team in 2014 and 2015, averaging 16.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.1 blocks and 1.6 assists per game during his final year with the outfit.
He took part in the 2015 Summer League in Las Vegas with the New York Knicks, racking up 9.6 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2 blocks on average in the process, and notching up 23 points during a win over the Sixers. He then signed for the Dallas Mavericks, but never made his competitive debut for the team.
