At 6-foot-9, Pindo Drammeh of Anchorage is a defensive presence as a rim protector under the basket.

If he’s not blocking shots, he’s altering shots or forcing opponents into bad decisions.

But against Peru State the big man showed off his offensive skills.

The Clarke University junior center converted 10-of-14 field goals and finished with a season-high 21 points in a 97-89 loss in Dubuque, Iowa.

Drammeh, of Service High fame, also grabbed eight rebounds, made a steal and blocked a shot.

It was just his seventh double-figure scoring effort in 21 games.

Drammeh is averaging 7.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.0 blocked shot per game.
