Williston State College in North Dakota has announced the signing of Manitoba standout, Ayob Ayob to a National Letter of Intent.  Regarded as one of the best players in Manitoba, Ayob is a versatile 6'7" forward with a wing-span over 7 feet. Ayob was a member of the 2012 Manitoba Under-17 Provincial Team, which won a silver medal at the Canadian National Championship tournament. During his senior season Ayob averaged over 25 points per game, receiving multiple all-star selections, including being named the MVP at the Kildonan East Varsity tournament.  Williston State is located in north west North Dakota, just south of Regina and plays out of the Mon-Dak Athletic Conference and is part of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA)

AyobAyob finished the year ranked as the #4 university prospect in Manitoba and was selected to the All-Manitoba Team. Ayob was also recognized as a Graduating All-Star and was named MVP for his team after the Graduating All-Star game. As a member of the Winnipeg Wolves Club Basketball Program throughout his prep career, he enjoyed success in many different tournaments across Canada and the US, including being named the MVP at the 2012 Minnesota Heat Meg Vang Shootout where he lead his Wolves-1995 squad capture the 16U tournament championship.

Ayob brings in versatility and depth to the Teton roster. His international play against some elite competition will be a great addition to the team. "Ayob is exactly what we were looking for to round out our roster.  He is very long, moves well, and has guard skills at 6-7.  Ayob is a perfect fit for our system and plays extremely hard." Said Peterson.

The Tetons are returning just one player from last year's campaign, and with the addition of a transfer will only have two sophomores on the roster.  Coach Peterson weighed in on the makeup of the 2013-2014 Tetons.  "Our team will have a different look this year.  We are very young, but much more athletic and will be able to play at a faster pace.  I think we have a great mix of local and out of state players.  We are excited to get our guys on campus and started with workouts."
