St. Anthony's (N.J.) adds brothers as transfers -- one is 6-10, the other 6-5

Legendary Hall of Fame coach Bob Hurley Sr. is adding two brothers to his roster at St. Anthony’s (Jersey City, N.J.) — one is 6-10 and the other is 6-5.

Daniel Mading, the older and taller of the brothers, is a rising junior power forward who played at The Rock School in Gainesville, Fla., last year. His younger brother, Mariel, will be a freshman and is also transferring.

The brothers are from the Sudan and grew up in Australia. They are cousins with Thon and Matur Maker, who play at Orangeville Prep in Ontario.

Daniel Mading said he was being pursued by Arizona State — coached by Bobby Hurley — along with schools such as LSU, Florida, UConn and Kansas.

“I chose St Anthony’s because I have a good relationship with the coach, that’s where me and my family felt comfortable, and because the people there will push me both on and off the court to be at my best,” Daniel Mading told this week. “St Anthony will definitely prepare me for the next level because I’m being coached under a hall of fame coach, and just the people, and players, will push me every single day to get better and play my best. I also feel like I’ll learn a lot more about basketball which will have my basketball IQ ready for the next level.”
