Another year, another all-star for Narcisse Ambanza.

Ambanza, the fourth-year guard with the Winnipeg Wesmen men’s basketball team, was named a Canada West second-team all-star as the conference announced its annual top performers on Thursday.

It is the fourth time in four seasons Ambanza has been named a conference all-star becoming the first Wesmen player to make four straight all-star teams since Erfan Nasajpour did it from 2004 to 2008.
Ambanza was once again the catalyst for a Wesmen men’s team that finished the conference season 10-10 and made the post-season for the eighth straight year.

The Toronto native averaged a team-high 18.1 points per game and finished eighth in the conference in scoring. His scoring mark was just 0.8 points per game off his career-high, set last season.
Ambanza scored at least 20 points in 10 conference games, including a season-high 28 at UBC on Feb. 7.

In addition, Ambanza finished second in the conference in steals per game with a career-high 1.9 per contest and was seventh in the conference in assists per game (4.3).

Ambanza started all 20 conference games this season and averaged 33.9 minutes per game, which was fifth-highest in the conference.

It is the second straight season Ambanza has been named second-team all-conference. In 2017-18 he was named all-conference third-team and, as a freshman in 2016-17, was named to the conference’s all-rookie team.
