After leading Team Africa in first-ever NBA game in Africa on August 1, South Sudanese basketball star Luol Deng returned to Juba this week to support peace and encourage South Sudanese to engage in peaceful sport competitions.

He established the Manut Bol Court at the University of Juba to encourage students to play basketball. The new court is named after another famous South Sudanese baller, the late Manut Bol.
