Sim Bhullar, New Mexico State’s 7-foot-5 center
Sim Bhullar is a huge 7-foot-5, 340-pound player from New Mexico State. Bhullar averaged 15 points, 12.5 rebounds and 4 blocked shots in the semifinals and finals of the WAC tournament last week, leading his team to a second straight title and earning the Aggies an opening-round NCAA tournament matchup with fourth-seeded Saint Louis on Thursday.
Bhullar grew up in Toronto, both his 6-foot-4 father and 5-foot-10 mother were born in India. As a result, Bhullar and 7-foot-3 younger brother Tanveer, a promising high school prospect, both have the chance to be the first prominent basketball players of Indian descent.
