Weekend Chit-chat with ... Burlington Central boys basketball’s Moter Deng
Burlington Central senior forward Moter Deng is enjoying a breakout season for the Rockets boys basketball team after missing most of his junior year with a broken arm. Deng moved to the United States with his father from what is now South Sudan when he was 5 years old. Deng was 6-foot-2 as a sophomore before sprouting to 6-5. In this week’s Weekend Chit-chat with sports editor Jay Schwab, Deng touches base on some connections to his homeland, Rockets coach Brett Porto and the build-up to the postseason. The following is an edited transcript:
