Character

Despite having to sit out his first season at ORU due to transfer rules, Emegano has been the leader on the team since the day he stepped onto campus.

Community

In addition to the team community service activities, Emegano has worked with the Tulsa Boys Home, volunteered at Hope Center—a Biblical-based counseling center—and has gone to volunteer at McClure Elementary School. Over the summer, the team took a mission trip to the Dominican Republic, where Emegano and the team visited a local elementary school and also donated supplies on a visit to an orphanage.

Competition

During his junior season, Emegano earned NABC All-District Second Team, Summit League All-Conference First Team and Summit League All-Tournament Team honors. He was named the Summit League Player of the Week twice and led ORU in scoring at 18.3 points per game. During league play, Emegano upped that average to 19.4 points per game. As a junior, he finished the season sixth in ORU history (fourth at the Division I level) in free throws made (205) and attempted (260). Emegano also got it done defensively with 57 steals, tying him for ninth in program history. One of the best mid-range shooters in the game, Emegano scored 10-plus points in 28 games last year, while scoring 20-plus points 16 times and 30-plus points four times.
