Edosomwan Named to NABC All-District Second Team

Edosomwan is the seventh student-athlete to earn NABC All-District honors under Amaker (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Zena Edosomwan has been named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) All-District 13 second team, association officials announced Friday.

Edosomwan, who was also recently named to the All-Ivy League second team, stepped into a featured role for the Crimson this season after averaging just 9.3 minutes per game through his first two years. The junior led the Ivy League with 9.9 rebounds per game and scored 13.1 points per contest, good for 12th in the conference. He totaled 12 double-doubles to match the program record for most double-doubles in a season under Tommy Amaker, The Thomas G. Stemberg '71 Family Endowed Coach for Harvard Men's Basketball, and fell just four rebounds shy of becoming only the second Ivy Leaguer to average a double-double for a season since 1995-96. His 276 total rebounds were the seventh-most in program history, while his 9.9 rebounds per game ranked ninth.

A native of Los Angeles, California, Edosomwan was twice named Ivy League Player of the Week. His first award came following a dominant performance at the Diamond Head Classic where he averaged 20.3 points per game and 13.0 rebounds per game against Auburn, BYU and Oklahoma. He also received the final honor of the season after averaging 13.5 points and 14.0 rebounds in the team's sweep of Princeton and Penn.

Including Edosomwan, seven Harvard student-athletes have combined for 11 NABC All-District honors since 2008-09; Jeremy Lin '10 (2009 first team, 2010 first team), Keith Wright '12 (2011 first team, 2012 first team), Kyle Casey  '13-14 (2012 second team), Siyani Chambers '16-17 (2013 first team, 2014 second team), Wesley Saunders '15 (2013 first team, 2014 first team, 2015 first team), and Edosomwan '17 (2016 second team).
