Former Duquesne C Mounir Hima Transfers to Syracuse



On Wednesday, former Duquesne big Mounir Hima transferred to Syracuse after one season with the Dukes.

Hima started five games for Duquesne last year, averaging 1.9 points and 2.8 rebounds per game. The 6-foot-11 big man posted a season-high 9 points in his best game of the year against conference foe St. Bonaventure. In that game, he hit all three of his field-goal attempts and three of his four free-throw tries to finish with nine.

Hima started the Dukes’ last game of the year in the A10 tournament in Washington D.C. and got off to a hot start, hitting each of his first two field-goal attempts. However, he quickly got into foul trouble and had to spend most of the game on the bench as the Dukes fell to Rhode Island, ending their season.

He now joins a Syracuse squad that finished 16-17 overall last season, as well as 9-11 in ACC play.
