The rim protector.

Mady Sissoko


With the 7-foot-4 wingspan of a prehistoric bird, junior Mady Sissoko is an athletic 6’10” 215lbs beast on the court. His sheer size & strength overwhelm opponents, but he also has a deft touch around the rim paired with explosive leaping & mighty dunks. Recognized in both the Nike Top 100 Elite and 2020 ESPN 60 for this year, Mady is a proven enforcer in the paint with his tough, physical brand of basketball.

I have never seen a player improve more in three years than Mady. He has tremendous athleticism, work ethic and an amazing motor. He plays so hard. Mady believes that he can defend anyone and get every rebound. He continues to work on all his skills and has developed a very consistent outside shot. A great free throw shooter and post up player.

Off the Court


Mady is from Bafoulabé, Mali, West Africa and has been in the USA for two and a half years. He has six sisters and three brothers. His parents are Kassim Sissoko and Fatoumata Kanoute. The whole family works on the farm to make food and to eat.

Mady likes to just hang out with his teammates, family, and friends. He watches a lot of college and NBA basketball games on ESPN. Before games, practices or a workout in the gym, Mady enjoys watching or listening to motivational videos to better himself. And when he’s not sleeping or eating a lot of food, he loves to listen to music. Rap music is his favorite.

Missing his family greatly, he loves to talk to them whenever he has the chance. A devout Muslim, Mady prays 5 times a day to Allah and reads the Quran every night. He excels in his academic studies while working hard to be fluent in the English language.
