Senior. Oumar Ballo. West big men. Oumar Ballo. 511. 1. player. . . 7'0" 260 lbs

Oumar Ballo in my opinion is the best big man in this region, his height and size give him a huge advantage and his shooting percentage is top 10 in the country. It was hard to pick between Ballo and Bacot because, in two categories, they were so close, but in one stat, Ballo is head and shoulders above Bacot.

Ballo shoots the ball well averaging 13.1 pointers per game, but the reason I put him at the top of this list is because he has. 64.9 field goal percentage while also averaging 10.1 rebounds per game. When Ballo puts up a shot, it is most likely to go in and that is what makes him so scary, the more he shoots, the worse opponents have it.

In my opinion, I would love to see Bacot and Ballo go at it in the Elite Eight, but a lot of basketball has to be played before we get there, but that would be one great matchup to watch.
