Today on the Basketball Manitoba Podcast, we have Emmanuel Akot.  

Emmanuel first attended Valley Gardens Middle School, then Kildonan East Collegiate up until the 10th grade. He played with both the Winnipeg Mayhem and Winnipeg Wolves Basketball Clubs, then received an offer to attend Wasatch Academy Prep Academy in Mount Pleasant, Utah. As a senior at Wasatch Academy, he averaged 17 points, seven rebounds and two assists per game. 

He was a member of the Manitoba Provincial Team program since the age of 14 and then the Canadian National Team program in the summer of 2016, representing the country at the U17 FIBA World Championships in Spain.

He was selected to the Bio-Steel All-Canadian Game and the NBA All-Star Game's Basketball Without Borders Camp in 2017.  He was a Four-Star recruit by ESPN and was recruited to play at the University of Arizona, where he played for two seasons. 

He then transferred to Boise State, where he helped lead the Broncos to the school’s first-ever Mountain West Conference title, earning a berth into the NCAA March Madness tournament.  

This fall, he will be suiting up for coach Penny Hardaway with the Memphis Tigers in the AAC.
