FSW record-breaker ready to lead Bucs back to NJCAA Tournament

LEE COUNTY, Fla. – The list of Florida Southwestern players making an impact at the next level continues to grow, and freshman Bryant Selebangue looks like he could be next.

Every college athlete has a unique journey, and the Selebangue is no different. Technically, he’s a college sophomore but took a COVID year, so he’s considered a freshman at the Bucs. His basketball journey took him from his home in Quebec, Canada to Hutchinson, Kansas, and now Southwest Florida.
“Coming from Canada, the change was different you know when you switch from Canadian basketball to American basketball,” Selebangue said.

He might say the adjustment is tough, but you can fool anyone who’s looked at his stats from this season or the records he’s flirting with.

“Honestly, I didn’t really pay attention, it was a great feeling when I was just out there to play. I play hard every day, all the time,” said Selebangue.

He doubled his season averages, bounces and minutes from a year ago at Hutchinson Community College and set the program records for doubles and total doubles. consecutively in a season with the Bucs. He also only needs a couple of counter-attacks to keep that record.

If you look at him you can tell from his 6’9″ frame that he is physically dominant on the field, but it’s the mental side of the game that he credits for change.

“Honestly determined. I have transformed my mindset and I feel like once I switch my mindset I will be able to go up,” Selebangue said.

His path is sure to take him to the next level with five offers from Dickson One, but he has set his sights on returning to where his basketball career in America began, Hutchinson.

That’s where the national league is and after missing out a year ago, he wants to be the one to lead the Bucs back to where he started.

“That’s why I was recruited here as well because they know I’m an experienced big player who played there,” Selebangue said. “Motivation keeps us going to Hutch and proving the teams wrong. This year we have to show you that we can do it.”

The 16th-ranked Bucs will have two games this week and will return home on Saturday.
