Victor Samnick was a 6 ft 8 inch forward out of the Cameroon via the Newport Prep School. I remember his long arms and active smile. My greatest memory of him was inbounding the ball to Nat Burton in the 2001 NCAA Tournament first round game against Arkansas. The play eventually let to Nat Burton scoring a wrap around layup at the buzzer to give Georgetown its first NCAA win in four years helping to launch Generation Burton in 2001. Victor would go onto play professional ball in France winning several championships. For those of you who speak French you can see the highlight film below:
