The Motlow Bucks men’s basketball roster has now expanded to a dozen players as Head Coach Matt Sligh recently announced four more additions, including power forward Greg Mason from Baltimore, guard Kerby Lubin from Orlando, wing Emmanuel Osama from Houston and forward Emmanuel Ezoua from Ivory Coast, West Africa.
Sligh continues to add players from across the country who he expects to make an immediate impact for the Bucks this season. He will announce one more group of signees next week as the Bucks head toward the beginning of practice on Oct. 1.
Mason, a 6’ 6” power forward, played last season for Raleigh’s Finest Sports Academy in Oklahoma City, Okla., where he averaged 17 points and 13 rebounds per game. As a high school senior in 2012 he averaged 20 points and 12 rebounds per contest at Henry Lackey High School in Charles County, Md.
Lubin, a 6’ 2” sophomore transfer guard from Seminole State Community College, played at Raleigh’s Finest two years ago after graduating from Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando, Fla. in 2011. He battled injuries at Seminole State, but scored 16 and 19 points in the two games he played healthy.
Osama is a 6’ 4” sophomore wing who comes to Motlow after spending his freshman season as a teammate of Lubin at Seminole State, where he also saw limited action due to injury. He prepped at God’s Academy in Dallas two years ago, averaging 18 points and six rebounds per game, after graduating from Alief Hastings High School in Houston in 2011.
Ezoua is a 6’ 4” forward who played his high school basketball at Lanier County High School in Lakeland, Ga., after moving to the United States in 2008 from Ivory Coast, West Africa. He scored over 2,000 points and hauled down over 1,500 in his four-year career at Lanier County, and was named 1st team all-state three of his four years in Georgia.
