Tylor Ongwae’s professional career off to flying start


Kenya basketball ace Tylor Okari Ongwae became a professional in August of this year when he joined Swedish second tier side Solna Vikings. Ongwae, a product of Friends school Kamusinga, Ranger college in Shreveport and the University of Louisiana Monroe, is already having a sensational season. Through 7 games, he is averaging 18.1 points per game and 7.9 rebounds per game. His side Solna Vikings are currently third in the standings as they aim to return to the top tier.

After the last match, in which Solna Vikingsbeat Norrort 89-55, coach Janne Koskimies sung Ongwae’s praises, “Tylor defended their big man Marcus Friman out of the game Norrort scored only 17 points before halftime.  I have to mention again Nick and Tylor and the balance they are bringing to our team”. said Koskimmies

    Tylor has made a significant contribution to our team as a good team player and a great scoring and defensive player. He leads the team in rebounds (9.8 per game) and is second only to our American player in scoring (19.7 per game). Anyone interested in seeing him play, just drop me an email and I will provide you with a link to online videos. (ronny@makkonen.nu)
