    Fousseyni Traore swept the WCC Men's Basketball Freshman and Player of the Week honors after he was named to the all-tournament team at the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic. He helped the Cougars to a third-place finish at the tournament with wins over South Florida and Liberty and a narrow loss to Vanderbilt in between.

He also registered a career-best 15 rebounds against Vanderbilt. For the three-game tournament, Traore averaged 13 points, 12.3 rebounds and a block per game while shooting 63.2 percent from the field and 75.0 percent from the free-throw line. These are the first WCC honors for the Cougar freshman.

    Traore is going to be a really good player for BYU. Not tall but strong with long arms. Guy can rebound, just needs to develop some offense.
