Christian Mekowulu dominated in last night's game against Texas! Although they lost by one point, Mekowulu had a total of 35 minutes on the court, 15 points, and 11 rebounds. He has had a tremendous season thus far, and ESPN wants to know where he came from! No more wondering -- he came from Covenant Christian Ministries Academy!
Christian Mekowulu, a redshirt junior at Tennessee State University, is majoring in social science and is dominating the court after missing the 2015-16 season while recovering from knee surgery. Originally from Lagos, Nigeria, Mekowulu spent three of his four high school years being trained, groomed, and coached by Frederick T. Anderson, Sr. In his senior year at Covenant, he was awarded Team MVP and averaged a double-double of 12 points and 11 rebounds per game. He was rated as the 14th best forward and 36th best overall player from Georgia according to maxpreps.com. This season, as a 6'9" forward for TSU, he was named OVC Player of the Week. Keep up the good work, Mekowulu!
Congratulations, Christian! We're so proud of you!
