What is most impressive about Marfo is his hands, nice touch, and good instincts on the glass. Right now he isn’t the most explosive kid and he isn’t a gazelle running the court, but he plays well with his back to the basket and catches everything near him.

BABC’s (45) Kevin Marfo has a big physical presence on both ends of court.
Not sure there is a “big” that does a better job of carving out space than Kevin Marfo…savvy scorer in paint..# BABC. .
Kevin Marfo is absolutely eating right now. Unbelievable footwork and use of counters in the post. Plays angles so well
Great, great spurt out of Kevin Marfo. Big fella scoring in the blow and showing off a nice interior passing ability near the basket
Would say 5 best stock boosting 2016 bigs at Peach Jam..Kevin Marfo, Cyril Langevin, Eric Curry, Ben Kone, and Bruno Fernando
Like how Kevin Marfo works with his back to basket. Has a deep bend, gets the D on his hip and keeps them there, gives a target, calls ball.
Four best guys I’ve seen today are four hardest playing. Bruce Brown, Kevin Marfo, Brison Gresham, Kevin Knox.
Some Bonzie Colson to Kevin Marfo. 2016 big knows how to score with back to rim and seems to come up with 10+ boards by getting out of bed
Kevin Marfo just had a face up one dribble attack in the post finished on the other side after spinning through two. Great move
Kevin Marfo has been the human vacuum early on for Babc. Everything in his area is his. Total ownership
