Gopher Commit Trevor Mbakwe Off to Strong Start

Posted Nov 3, 2008


Trevor Mbakwe, a 6-foot-8 forward from Miami-Dade (FL) CC who committed to Minnesota last month, has helped lead the Sharks to a 2-0 start. Mbakwe scored 21 points and grabbed 31 rebounds in the two wins.

Trevor Mbakwe had nine points, 17 rebounds and three blocked shots as the Sharks defeated Daytona State 85-58 Friday on the road in the 2008-2009 season opener. Miami Dade dominated on the boards, holding a 54-27 advantage.

Mbakwe was one of four double-figure scorers as Miami Dade defeated St. Petersburg (0-1) 83-75 on the road. Mbakwe finished with 12 points and 14 rebounds.

Miami Dade just missed out on being in the preseason Top 30 NJCAA poll, but figures to have an outstanding chance of cracking the first regular-season poll. They face IMG Academy tomorrow.
