ASSANE'S STORY
Assane left SEEDS Academy, his friends, and his family in Senegal after receiving a scholarship to continue his education at South Kent School in Connecticut. Facing an unfamiliar environment, Assane remained focused on the promise he made to his mother before she died—to educate himself and seek success through basketball. Despite his gentle manner and insecurity about his 7' frame off the court, Assane exhibits a ferocious hunger on the court. With the right coaching and mentoring, Assane's potential as a player and person is virtually limitless.
