The 2014-15 season marked James Siakam's arrival as an impact player in the SEC. Commodore fans knew that Siakam could grab rebounds from the day he stepped on campus, but it took four years for the raw Cameroonian to develop into an efficient scorer and rabid defender in the front court. His senior leadership helped carry Vanderbilt to 21 victories and their first winning season since 2012.
Today, our player-by-player look back at Vanderbilt basketball will roll on with the last senior on the roster. Losing James Siakam will be a significant blow for this team, but the impending arrivals of D'Jery Baptiste and Samir Sehic will help the 'Dores soften the impact. "Bamba" stepped up in a big way for this team, and a quick look at his play in the SEC shows just how effective he was.
