Male Athlete of the Week – Tevaun Kokko (Markham, Ont.) – 2nd Year – Laurier Golden Hawks

Tevaun Kokko, a second year Arts major, was an unmistakable presence on the court this past weekend, helping the Golden Hawks go toe-to-toe with tough squads from both Western and Windsor.  

Kokko scored a career-high 30 points off the bench against Windsor, as he shot 10-for-20 from the field and 6-for-10 from three-point range, alongside six rebounds and two assists. His efforts helped guide Laurier to a 98-91 win over the Lancers, snapping their five-game losing skid and pushing his team into a three-way tie for 4th in the OUA West.

When the purple and gold faced Western on Friday, meanwhile, Kokko secured 22 points (8-17 FG), three rebounds, and four assists in a last-second 78-76 loss to the Mustangs. His strong effort on the court has moved him into third in the OUA for scoring at 21.5 points per game.
