Sekou Konneh of Wisconsin Lutheran has been selected as the top senior Defender as part of the WSN Senior Basketball Awards.

Fresh from leading Saint Thomas More to a 29-1 record and the WIAA Division 3 state championship, the 6-foot-9 Konneh earned the award by ranking among the state leaders in rebounding (10.7 rpg) and blocked/altered shots (1.3 bspg). 

In addition, Konneh was a strong offensive presence for the Cavaliers. He averaged 22.6 ppg and shot 60 percent from the floor and 70 percent from the foul line. In Saint Thomas More's two state-tournament games, Konneh averaged 21.5 points and 13.0 rebounds. He had three blocked shots in the Division 3 title game win over Lakeside Lutheran.

Konneh, who is undecided on where he will play college basketball but is receiving recent interest from De Paul, completed his three-year high school career with 1,488 points, 966 rebounds and 94 blocked shots. 

Finalists for the award were Konneh, Jacob Erickson of Unity, Tamarrein Henderson of West Salem, TJ Lamb of Almond-Bancroft and Henry Meyer of La Crosse Central.
