Malachi Ndur Joins W&M Men’s Basketball as Graduate Transfer

(Tribe Athletics)

WILLIAMSBURG — William & Mary head men’s basketball coach Brian Earl announced the addition of graduate transfer forward Malachi Ndur (St. Thomas, Ontario / Cushing Academy / Brown) to the Tribe roster for the 2024-25 season. Ndur is the second graduate transfer and fifth member of the Tribe’s incoming group for next season.

“Malachi is a great veteran addition, and we are excited to add his level of experience to our post position,” Earl said. “Having coached against him in the Ivy League, I know he will fit well with how we want to play. His athleticism, ability to rebound and shoot the basketball are great traits. He is a former Canadian Youth National teammate of Matteus Case, so he will immediately have some familiarity with the program.”

Ndur will earn his bachelor’s degree from Brown in psychology and enrolled in a graduate program in W&M’s prestigious Raymond A. Mason School of Business.

In 58 career games with four starts at Brown, Ndur averaged 3.3 points and nearly three rebounds per game. He was a key reserve for the Bears last season, helping the program to the Ivy League Championship game for the first time. Ndur scored 12 points and added six rebounds in the Bears’ narrow 62-61 loss to Yale in the title game.

Last season, Ndur appeared in all 31 games with one start. He averaged four points and three rebounds, shooting 48.2% from the field, 35.3% from 3, and 72.1% at free throw line. He came on strong late in the season, averaging 7.8 points and 3.8 rebounds over five games during the month of March. He shot 76.5% from the field (13-of-17) and 71.4% from 3 (5-of-7) during that stretch.

The 6-8 forward scored a career-high 14 points and was a perfect 4-of-4 from 3-point range at Dartmouth in January and just missed a double-double in Ivy League play with nine points and a season-high eight rebounds against Columbia in February.

As a junior, Ndur had his season cut short due to injury. He played in 16 games with three starts, averaging 3.6 points and three rebounds per game. Ndur enjoyed his best game of the season, scoring 10 points at Michigan State in December on 4-of-7 shooting.

Ndur was an AAU (with the Northern Kings) and Canadian Youth National teammate with W&M senior Matteus Case. The pair helped Canada to the silver medal at the U16 FIBA America Championship in 2017. Ndur led the tournament in rebounds.

During his prep career, Ndur was a two-time All-NEPSAC honorable mention selection at Cushing Academy. He was named the Athlete of the Year at Cushing Academy and averaged 12 points, eight rebound, four assists and 1.6 blocks per game in his final season. Off the court, he was the Holden 1888 Prize recipient as a graduate of Cushing Academy for exemplary displays of loyalty and friendliness on the Cushing campus.

Ndur is the fifth newcomer and second graduate transfer to sign with the Tribe for 2024-25. He joins fellow transfers Keller Boothby (Plano, Texas / Prestonwood Christian Academy / Cornell), Kyle Pulliam (Silver Spring, Md. / Our Lady of Good Counsel / St. Thomas Aquinas) and Jack Scott (Colorado Springs, Colo. / The Hun School / Princeton), and freshman Ryan Jackson (Mesa, Ariz./AZ Compass Prep) as part of the Tribe’s incoming class.
