Akwasi Yeboah Named to Division B All-Tournament Team

Akwasi Yeboah has been named to the Division B All-Tournament team after helping lead GB Under-20s to promotion at the European Championships in Oradea, Romania.

The Stony Brook forward netted a game-high 22 points earlier today as GB defeated Russia 81-65 to secure third place and promotion.

Yeboah averaged 14.3 points and 4.7 rebounds per game over seven games in the tournament – scoring exactly 100 points.

The 20-year-old also scored 22 points in GB’s first win over Russia in the group stages with 16-point displays coming against Slovakia and Croatia.

Romania’s Emanuel Cate took the MVP award as the hosts defeated Croatia 80-67 in the final to win gold.

It’s another honour for Yeboah to add to his resume having made the Conference All-Rookie team for the Seawolves.

    A really excellent result and many congratulations to the players and the coaching staff. However (!!!), what is vitally important now is to concentrate and give all possible support to the U18 players who will be coming through and will be responsible for GB U20 staying in DIV A next year.
