Kassoum Yakwe Wins Nike EYBL Defensive Player of the Year Award, Targeting Summer Decision on Next Step
The 6-foot-7, 205-pound forward from the PSA Cardinals and Our Savior New American averaged 3.1 blocks and 6.3 rebounds per game en route to the award.
He is the second straight player from the PSA Cardinals program to win Defensive Player of the Year honors, following incoming Kansas freshman Cheick Diallo.
“Last year I didn’t have the chance to play a lot because there we had older players, and that was their last go in the EYBL,” Yakwe told HardwoodInsiders.com. “I understood all of that. I got to learn a lot from those players and my coaches.”
