Big props for Sene

Posted by Percy Allen

Mouhamed Sene's season seemed as if it ended sour note after he suffered a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee during last Friday's Idaho Stampede game at Bakersfield of the NBA Development League, however, the Sonics center was named co-Defensive Player of the Year in the NBDL today.

Sene, who was named All D-League Honorable Mention this past Sunday, appeared in 27 games with the Idaho Stampede this season, averaging 12.1 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in 27.5 minutes per game.

Sene shares this year's award with the Miami Heat/Los Angeles D-Fenders' Stephane Lasme.

As the first Seattle Sonics player to win the award, Sene also shares the distinction of being the first international player to be named NBA Development League Co-Defensive Player of the Year with Lasme, a Gabonese native.

"It's an honor to win this award and be acknowledged for all the hard work I've put into improving on the defensive end of the floor," Sene said in a statement. "I appreciate being recognized by the league and being able to represent Senegal."
