Ange Kouame on MVP award
"I just want to say thank you to the Ateneo community. It's been a long year and you guys have always been there," he said after taking home the UAAP Season 84 MVP trophy on Wednesday.
"I want to thank my teammates for being there for me. Whatever we do is for the community. Let's go Ateneo!"
Kouame was the runaway winner of the top individual plum with his 69.214 statistical points (SPs) thanks to his averages of 12.8 points, 11.0 rebounds, 2.1 blocks, 1.7 assists, and 1.0 steal.
He becomes the first Blue Eagle to win the trophy since Kiefer Ravena in 2014 and 2015.
Grateful as Kouame is for the distinction, there's still a game to be won for him and the rest of Ateneo as the Katipunan side aims to force a decider with Game Two set at 6 p.m.
