Alexis Mang-Ikri Wangmene (born March 1, 1989) is a Cameroonian professional basketball player for the Austin Spurs of the NBA Development League. He played college basketball for the Texas Longhorns and has represented the Cameroon national team.
Wangmene was spotted by San Antonio Spurs general manager R. C. Buford at a Basketball Without Borders camp in his native Cameroon. Buford and his wife brought Wangmene to the United States and resettled him in San Antonio, where he played basketball and attended Central Catholic Marianist High School for two years. During his junior year at Central, the power forward was named to the TAPPS 6A All-State team. Following his junior year, Wangmene transferred to Blair Academy in New Jersey, from which he graduated in 2007.
At Texas, Wangmene missed all but four games of his sophomore year with a knee injury. In May 2009, he received a medical redshirt because of the injury and had three years of eligibility remaining prior to the 2009–10 season.
After going undrafted in the 2012 NBA draft, Wangmene joined the San Antonio Spurs for the 2012 NBA Summer League. On November 2, 2012, he was selected by the Austin Toros in the fifth round of the 2012 NBA Development League Draft. In July 2013, he re-joined the San Antonio Spurs for the 2013 NBA Summer League.
