A 6’3” point guard, Byekwaso will join Northeast from Preston’s College in Preston, England, where he was teammates with current Northeast player Melkisedek Moreaux. The pair helped lead Preston’s to an Academy Basketball League (ABL) championship after an undefeated season. Byekwaso was also named Player of the Year for the ABL’s North Conference.

Byekwaso averaged 25 points per game with an efficiency rating of 30.4 and a 65.6 two-point field goal percentage. He was also the number one ranked player at 2015’s DENG Camp Top 50, a prestigious basketball camp hosted by Los Angeles Lakers forward Luol Deng for the United Kingdom’s most talented male basketball players.

The Hawks’ season is set to begin November 1.
