Ndoye is a long and active center who makes his biggest impact on the defensive end of the floor where he blocks shots and alters others. He has good agility for a player his size with a sturdy frame and good body. He runs the floor very well, has good hands, and good touch from the outside. He has a good motor and does a good job establishing position before the ball arrives. Being athletic and a true center, Ndoye has an ideal NBA/Euroleague center frame with tremendous dimensions including a huge 7’4” wingspan. For a low post player he demonstrates good shooting mechanics and can easily knock down the 18-20 foot jumper. He is very aggressive in dunking everything on pick-and-rolls. Players his size don’t usually have his agility. He is solid in the open floor and has good leaping ability, showing nice touches for a big man.
