    Emmanuel Akot Commits to NCAA D1 Arizona Wildcats for 2018-19 Season




    Winnipeg native Emmanuel Akot has made the announcement that he is committing to the Arizona Wildcats of the Pac-12 Conference for the 2018-19 NCAA season.  Arizona is one of the top men's basketball program in the US, currently sitting at #7 in the national rankings heading into March Madness and will be a tournament favourite.

    Emman made the decision public on his Twitter account earlier today including the comment below...










    Emmanuel is currently attending Wasatch Academy in Utah after coming off his final year with Team Manitoba over the past summer.  He has suited up for Team Canada over the past two summers and is expected to this coming summer as well.  Prior to heading to Utah, he attended Kildonan East Collegiate and Valley Gardens Middle School in Winnipeg.

    Last month, Emmanuel was one of a select few to be invited to the NBA All-Star Game's Basketball Without Borders Camp that led
    the campers through a variety of activities on and off the court, including movement efficiency, positional skill development, shooting and skills competitions, 5-on-5 games, and daily life skills seminars focusing on health, leadership and communication.

    1. This is HUGE! Best prospect out of Manitoba since MacCullough with the potential to be tops all time from MB. I'll never forget when I saw him as an 8th grader holding back on dunks because of the provincial rule at the time. What a specimen.
