As if there weren’t already enough things going right for the Saint Mary’s men’s basketball team this season – 1st in the WCC, #23 in the NCAA, not to mention a viral rap video – former Gaels’ star, Omar Samhan, is back in the news giving the Moraga faithful yet another reason to smile.

Samhan, who led the Gaels to the Sweet Sixteen in last year’s NCAA tourney and recently led his Lithuanian pro team to a league championship, now has his eyes set on leading the Egyptian National team to the 2012 Olympics. Inside Bay Area has the full story.

After that? The San Ramon native hopes to catch the interest of an NBA squad, and as all Warriors fans know, we’re just a big bodied center away from making the playoffs. This is worth noting because Samhan is a 6’11”, 265 lb. center and said this morning, “Tell the Warriors I’m ready to come back.”

Now maybe it’s just me, but doesn’t the idea of giving the local boy a tryout sound like a fabulously low-risk move? If you’re a Dubs fan, I’d love to know what you think. Should Golden State give Omar a shot?
