Towering Tylor bags another gong
- An excited Tylor Ongwae, who has played the better half of the season injured, says that he is honoured to receive the award and to command the respect of his peers in the league.
A few days after winning the Danish Cup with Bakken Bears, Kenya Morans’ guard Ongwae Okari has been named Danish Defensive Player of the Year.
The 29-year-old is in his third season with the Danish giants, and has been instrumental for the champions on the defensive end enabling him to lock down offensive players and the defensive positioning that gets him steals and stops in games.
An excited Tylor Ongwae, who has played the better half of the season injured, says that he is honoured to receive the award and to command the respect of his peers in the league.
He added that winning the gong wasn’t easy but he hopes to be fit and ready for the playoffs.
“About the championship, it was a really close game but we ended up winning by two points in overtime. It was hard for us because coming into the championship, we had a lot of injuries and we were missing key players, but into the final, the whole team was there, we played well, we competed. I’m just glad that we won. We are going into the playoffs now and I hope I would have fully recovered,” said Tylor.
He also credits his success to his pre-game preparation, film sessions that enable him to study the opponents’ games and tendencies, and the team’s defensive concepts that always put him in a position to defend well.
