PSA alum pg 9 11-1-18

PUTNAM — Putnam Science Academy alum Hamidou Diallo made his NBA debut on Opening Night against the defending Champion Golden State Warriors. The Warriors received their 2018 NBA Championship rings on Oct. 16 when they opened at home to start the season. It wasn’t just a big night for the Warriors as Putnam Science Academy alum Hamidou Diallo would make his Thunder debut in an eventual loss to Golden State 108-100. Diallo played nine minutes for Oklahoma City off the bench and would finish with four points on 2 for 4 shooting. Hami, who is PSA’s all-time leading scorer with 1,415 points in his PSA career, also compiled a steal, assist and rebound in his debut. Diallo was drafted by the Brooklyn Nets in the second round of the NBA draft before he was traded to the Thunder. Head Coach Tom Espinosa of Putnam Science Academy was thrilled to see one of his former Mustangs playing on the biggest stage. “Hami is a special player and we knew that here at PSA. To be able to watch him on national television and be able to see him grow as a person and a player is truly remarkable.”
