Hoos with a First

@UVAMensHoops alum Mmadi Diakite is making history in the NBA Finals. This article from Caroline Darney discusses the fact that Diakite was the first player from his native Guinea to play in an NCAA Final Four. He’s now the first in an NBA Final. The Bucs trail the Suns 1-0 in the series which began last night.

As nice as Caroline’s story is, Marc Davis of NBC12 in Richmond is the one who has come up with the deep-dive Mamadi scoop. Watch above.
