This spring playing with Grassroots Sizzle, 2019 center Malik Lamin had a couple games on the UAA circuit that grabbed the attention of college coaches.  Lamin is now ready for his next journey.

“I’m going to be leaving DeLasalle,” Malik said.  “I’m going to be going to a different school, I’ll tell you about in the up coming weeks.

“This off-season I’m looking to expand my game to the world that they didn’t get to see before.”

Last year Lamin was the top Islander shot blocker plus he scored 4.5 points with three rebounds a game.  Things have changed since March though as Malik is playing for a new Grassroots team and he plans on playing for a new school this 18-19 year.  With the Sizzle, Lamin has made 12 of 31 shots for 33 points in seven games plus he’s grabbed four rebounds a contest while blocking six shots.

“What I’ve enjoyed about this AAU season is the official college head coaches watching you,” Lamin said. “Me and Team Sizzle are looking to win the UAA championship. We have the pieces and team chemistry to get the job done.”

Malik mentioned an assortment of different schools in contact as he enters his final year of high school.

“I’ve been in contact with Ball State, Arizona State, Dayton, and different schools called my AAU coach about me like Stanford, Purdue, and New Mexico,” Lamin said.  “I’ll be attending Arizona State elite basketball camp next week. I don’t have any unofficial or official visits yet.”
