Akognon has never made it to the NBA, although he's been on the radar. He transferred from Washington State after his sophomore season, and landed at Cal State-Fullerton, where he enjoyed the higher tempo, higher scoring, less halfcourt defensive-mind game. Akognon is a fine shooting with a lightning quick release; that said, he's pretty much only a shooter. He's a 5'11 scorer without a point guard's mindset or abilities, and not much to contribute on defense. But he's also more than capable of exploding on any given night, as evidenced by his seven scoring outputs in the 30's this season, capped by his 44 point season high. He also once scored 37 points in a Big West Tournament game, a game in which the opposition (UC Riverside) scored only 46 total. And no matter which way you look at it, 26.3 is a hell of a lot of points to score in only 30 minutes a game.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
