Big Cedric Rises to the Occasion in Springfield

Cedric Kuakumensah 
- This big fella from Worcester (the hometown on the Spaceship's Sergeant-At-Arms) did himself a huge favor this week by proving in front of college coaches that he is a player who consistently makes high-level basketball plays.  A strong 6'8 athlete with a 7-foot wingspan, Cedric was probably the main reason why the Rivals left Springfield as co-champion.  While he is not a traditional low-post scorer, Kuakumensah is a lunch-pale guy who attacks the rim with two hands and who by trade is a shot-blocker/alterer.  He is also a force on the boards and does a great job of efficiently out-letting the ball to start the break.  He also showed the ability, on more than one occasion, to grab a rebound and bust out with a few dribbles himself to start the break.  On the offensive end, Cedric is perpetually active on the glass and gets a lot of bucket on put-backs.  The icing on the cake for Cedric was his 3-3 performance from behind the arc with a stroke that is starting to look pretty good.  This guy is a warrior to the bone and with his team-first attitude, he will be a coup for any mid-major college basketball program
