Karim Ezzedine gave Lobo fans a glimpse of what’s to come during the regular season. The six foot eight junior forward was everywhere on the court during the Cherry and Silver game last Friday. Ezzedine was finding buckets and making defensive plays.
Ezzedine described himself in an interview. “A high motor, a win mindset,” said Ezzedine. “I’ve always been on a winning team and I don’t think it’s a mistake. I’ve always had that winning mentality.”
Ezzedine averaged nearly eight points and four rebounds per game at Northwest Florida State College last season. He led his team to a 31-3 season.
Ezzedine had a team-leading 17 blocks and shot over 48 percent from the field, over 35 percent from beyond the arc. Lobos head coach Paul Weir knew Ezzedine would be a good fit while recruiting him.
“He played the front of the press at junior college, that’s would kind of stood out to us the whole time we watched him,” said Weir. “We thought he was a perfect fit for how we play because how we play is exactly what he has done for the last two years.”
The Lobos will start the season on the road at Cal State Northridge Oct. 6.
Ezzedine averaged nearly eight points and four rebounds per game at Northwest Florida State College last season, leading his team to a 21-2 season.
