Northwestern logoOrange City, Iowa — Mading Thok from South Sudan has signed a letter of intent to continue his basketball career at Northwestern College next year.

Thok is a 7’0” post player who transfers to Northwestern after a season playing for Ball State University. Thok, who will have two years of eligibility left, played in 17 games for Ball State and averaged 3.5 points and 2.3 rebounds, shooting nearly 70% from the field.

In the senior year of his high school career Thok earned class 2A all-state honors after averaging 19.1 points and 9.3 rebounds per game for Western Christian High School. He totaled 30 blocks and was a first team all-conference selection. Thok plans to major in business at Northwestern and is the son of Anyuon Atem Thok and Achol Manyok Mading and his guardians are Bob and Laura Koerselman.

“We are thrilled to have Mading join Northwestern College and the Red Raider basketball program,” commented head coach Kris Korver. “Mading is a 7-footer who will make his presence felt in the paint on both sides of the floor. He is a quality young man with a great family and has been coached well. Mading’s Northwestern teammates and coaching staff, along with the NWC community, are excited to have him with us and look forward to working hard to make the next two years special.”
