2019-20 #PBCHOOPS Boys Private Schools MVP - Yussif Basa-Ama
The 2019-20 #PBCHOOPS Boys Private School MVP is Yussif Basa-Ama of Saint Andrew's School.
Basa-Ama, a senior, averaged 15.3 points and 8.8 rebounds per game leading Saint Andrew's to the Class 3A State Championship. While the Scots were an ultra talented team, it was Basa-Ama who was the ultimate key. His defensive presence rebounding and blocking shots allowed the Scots to get out quickly, getting easy basics and giving their playmakers the opportunity to operate in open space. On the offensive side of the ball his post presence forced opponents to decide to either protect the paint or give up open perimeter shots and slashes to the basket. Not an easy decision and a problem Saint Andrew's opponents could not figure out all season long. Yussif has signed to continue his athletic and academic career at Yale University next fall and will be a player to watch at the next level.
