Emmanuel KwofieHe said, “I’m very excited that Emmanuel will be joining our team next year. He is a defensive-minded point guard with an ability to lock down opposing guards. He plays with confidence, handles the ball very well and is very intelligent on the floor.”


Coach Benoite thinks that Kwofie will make the other players on the team better.


He said, “Emmanuel is a pass-first point guard who plays much bigger than his size. Even though he prefers to pass than score, he has shown that he has the ability to create and knock down shots. With his strength and work ethic he has the potential to be a premier guard for years to come. He will be a great complement to the additions we have already made to our roster, and certainly strengthens our recruiting class this year.”
