Senior Kenny Kadji has played an integral part in Miami’s 2012-13 season helping to lead the Canes’ to both regular-season and ACC tournament titles leading to an automatic bid to the 2013 NCAA Tournament.

Kadji averaged 12.9 points per game and 6.8 rebounds per game for the Hurricanes who won a school-best 15 conference games.

Following the Canes’ 71-61 loss to Marquette, Kadji expressed his gratitude via Twitter:

Kadji, who was ranked the No. 2 center in the state of Florida by Rivals, began his college ball at the University of Florida before transferring to Miami in 2010.  He played in 42 games for the Gators’ but had his 2009-10 season cut short.  Kadji would redshirt at Miami during the 2010-11 season averaged 11.7 ppg and 5.3 rpg during the 2011-12 season.
