Nathan Mensah

San Diego State University Men’s Basketball Team Head Coach Brian Dutcher has praised Ghana Center/ Power Forward Nathan Mensah tagging him as a player who is “getting better”.

He made this statement in a radio interview as reported by San Diego State University media in the aftermath of the team’s 77-52 win over San Jose State University.

The athletic 6 foot 10 inch defender is in his Senior Year and a strong run in the postseason coupled with his solid production could give him a shot at the NBA Draft.

Coach Dutcher alluded to this when he said, “he is playing better. As long as he concentrates and he is doing that a high level, Nathan he is a very good performer. He is dangerous at both ends
of the floor, offensively and defensively”.

Mensah is averaging 7.6 points, 7.1 rebounds and 2.1 blocks in 25.2 minutes across 25 games this season.
