King / Drew basketball coach Lloyd Webster insists he has made no secret of 6-foot-4 senior Kosy Akametu, who recorded four dunks and scored 30 points on Friday in a 90 win. -73 against Crenshaw. Akametu was simply absent from the action last season when King / Drew lost to Westchester in the Town Section Open Division semifinals.
It turns out that his father, who once played as a goalkeeper for the Nigerian national football team, took away his basketball privileges in January 2020 because his son’s algebra score fell to D and he ‘there is no authorized D in the family. Two older brothers played for Narbonne and a younger brother plays for King / Drew.
âI understand his point of view,â Akametu said. “He taught me a good lesson.”
Akametu teamed up with Kalib LaCount, who scored 34 points, to crush the Cougars (3-1). King / Drew (4-0) held a 27-point lead in the third quarter. Kevin Bradley did his best for Crenshaw, scoring 38 points.
Akametu has let everyone know that he is someone to recognize before the end of this season. At the start of the first quarter, with around thirty spectators sitting quietly in the stands, he walked over to the basket and threw a one-handed dunk that woke everyone up. Suddenly there was noise and talking about what they had just seen.
âThe way was open,â he said.
