Early life and high school careerEdit
Faye was born to Demba and Mame Youmane Niang Faye. He is the youngest of five children; his oldest brother, Assane Faye, played basketball at the University of New Hampshire. Faye attended SEED Academy in Dakar, Senegal. In 2002, he was a member of the Senegalese under-18 national basketball team, and in 2004 he was a member of the under-20 national team.
Due to a delay in the translation of his transcripts, Faye sat out his first season and was cleared to begin practice with the team in the fall 2006 semester. He started his career as a redshirt freshman in the 2006–07 season, but his initial playing status was in question due to a wrist injury that he sustained in a pickup game over the summer. Faye became a starter when his teammate Lewis Clinch was suspended for the remainder of the 2006–07 season on January 5, 2007. Faye was sidelined again on February 5, 2007 after struggling with flu-like symptoms, which coach Paul Hewitt speculated may have been caused by mononucleosis.
On August 13, 2015, Faye joined Pallacanestro Varese. He left the team before the end of the season, as he was found positive for doping. He was also suspended for six months from basketball. On July 17, 2016, Faye signed with the Greek team Promitheas Patras. On April 24, 2017, Faye signed with the Lebanese team Sagesse.
