(Notre Dame, Ind.) Holy Cross men's basketball senior Yama Kader (Mission Viejo, Cali.) has become the first men's basketball player in the history of the program to be named to two consecutive All-Conference teams following his 2nd Team All-CCAC recognition this season.
Kader, a senior transfer from Orange County, California, led the Saints in scoring for the second straight season while averaging 17.1 points per game and helping guide the program to its second consecutive 14 win season and second consecutive postseason victory.
Despite missing seven games with a hand injury, Kader still managed to lead the team in total points scored (427), 3-point field goals made (65) and was second in total field goals made (149).
One of the more memorable Yama Kader moments of the 2012-2013 season came on November 14th where he set not only a career high, but a school record in points in a game (44) and 3-point field goals made (9).
This is the second consecutive season that Kader has made an All-CCAC team since joining the Saints, making him the first all-time back-to-back All-League member for the Holy Cross men's basketball program. He has closed out his career with 967 total points in his two seasons with the program which places him second all-time in scoring.
On behalf of the Athletics Department at Holy Cross College, we would like to congratulate Yama Kader on his success on and off the court this season!
