Bio :

Fatou arrives at Niagara Prep from the Ivory Coast in Africa.  Possessing very good perimeter skills for a Forward, she is a dual-threat both inside and out. At 6'3 Fatou will present many mismatch opportunities on the court for Niagara Prep. Her length makes her a very good defender and her ability to rim protect and rotate on defence provide the team will confidence that help is there. Her basketball IQ is very good for a forward and as she continues to work on her strength and conditioning, she will be one of the best players in the OSBA. Once she settles into the North American culture she will be a can't miss 2023 recruit.
