MAC’s Yahusa Rasas to Texas Southern

(Park Hills) Mineral Area College forward Yahusa Rasas looks at his entire life as a blessing. The 6’7″ forward out of the St. Louis area led the Cardinals in scoring at 15.4 points and rebounding with 8.1 per game as a freshman. Both numbers exceeded his high school stats at St. Mary. Rasas says he surprised even himself…

He also excelled in the classroom with a 4.0 grade point average. Rasas came to MAC as a full qualifier which means he can move on to a four year college after this season. He has chosen Texas Southern

Rasas was born in Sudan in Africa, but fled with his family during a time of civil war in that country…

Rasas led MAC to a 23-9 record this season. The Houston based Texas Southern Tigers out of the SWAC went 24-14. Rasas hopes to someday become a veterinarian.
