Sidibe missed the entire 2015-16 season due to injury. 

Sidibe emerged as one of the conference’s top rebounders during the 2014-15 campaign, posting five double-doubles. He started the year with a 10-point, 12-rebound effort against Central Connecticut. He tallied double-doubles in three straight games – Loyola, Md. (13 pts, 13 rebs.), Siena (10 pts., 11 rebs.), and Rider (12 pts., 15 rebs.). The forward finished the season among the MAAC leaders in rebounding, securing sixth place with 6.8 caroms per contest. He missed five of the last six regular-season games with injury, but returned to play 15 minutes against Saint Peter’s in the MAAC tournament. He finished as the team’s most accurate shooter, connecting on 49.1 percent of his shots. He finished with a field goal percentage of .500 or better in nine of 13 games in which he attempted four or more field goals. When he played more than 20 minutes in a game, Sidibe averaged 10.1 rebounds per game over 12 games and secured eight or more rebounds in 11 of those 12 contests.

Sidibe served as the team captain during his sophomore season, starting 27 of his 32 appearances in 2013-14. His five appearances as a reserve were in succession, starting with the Northeastern game on December 15 and running through his appearance at Manhattan on January 4. His first double-digit scoring performance came at Siena when he netted 12 points. He surpassed that total with his double-double performance against Saint Peter’s in the final regular-season road game, tallying a career-high 18 points and 14 rebounds. His specialty was rebounding, proven by his team-best 6.6 caroms per contest which ranked eighth in the MAAC. He collected 10 or more rebounds eight times, beginning with a personal-best 16 rebounds against Holy Cross. He shot 45 percent from the floor, shooting 50 percent or better in 18 games. Sidibe finished his sophomore season with a 5.6 scoring and a 6.6 rebounding average.

Amadou Sidibe will serve his teammates as captain this season, earning the honor after an outstanding freshman season. The forward collected the MAAC Co-Rookie of the Year and picked up a berth to the MAAC All-Rookie team, joining teammate Marcus Gilbert for that honor. He earned the MAAC rookie of the week honor on January 25 after averaging 9.3 points and nine rebounds per game in a 2-1 week. He led the team in rebounding with 6.2 rebounds and was one of the team's most accurate shooters with a .527 field goal percentage. Sidibe started the year as a reserve, coming off the bench for the first five games, before getting his first start against Fordham in the NIT preseason tournament. He responded with his first double-digit performance, netting 10 points and adding eight rebounds against the Rams. Two games later, he tallied his first double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds against DePaul as a reserve. He would add one more double-double during the year, registering a career-best 12 points and 11 rebounds against Loyola Md. at home. He would surpass that 11-rebound effort with a career-best 13 caroms against Manhattan on February 12 and Saint Peter's in the MAAC tournament. Sidibe was the team's top rebounder in the Stags' four postseason games with 30 (7.5 per game).
