In UAAP Season 82 men basketball tournament, Ange Kouame earned the Chooks-to-Go Collegeiate Press Corps UAAP Player of the week after his dominant performances for their unbeaten opponent, the Blue Eagles.
He silently brought Ateneo to the victory after beating University of the East (UE) with a score of 85-68 and in their rematch against University of the Philippines (UP) scoring 89-63.
Who would have thought Kouame would gain such outstanding performance when someone is still behind his mastery. However, as his focus on uplifting the team, they able to get their championship award.
"I'm just focused on the game because everybody has to do their job," said the Ivorian big man. "When you do your job, you make the others better."
"If I want to run for MVP, I'm not playing for the team, I'm playing for myself," he added. "I'm just doing my thing, the way I always play."
I hope they could still defend their title the next season to come.
