For Pete's Sake

Watch Manute Bol’s son Bol Bol play on Bishop Miege’s JV team

Manute Bol’s son made his high school basketball debut Tuesday with Bishop Miege.

Bol Bol, transferred from Blue Valley Northwest early in the school year, and he is on Bishop Miege’s junior-varsity team, according to Max Preps.

His father, Manute Bol, played for four teams over a 10-year NBA career. After retiring, he eventually moved to Olathe. Manute, who was 7-foot-7, died in 2010 at the age of 47.

Bol Bol, who is a 6-foot-10 freshman according to Max Preps, exhibited some of his father’s traits on the court as he blocked shots, made a long-ranger jumper (Manute Bol once made six three-pointers in a half) and, of course, dunked.
