Edouard was named to the Region 21 All-Tournament Team in leading the Massasoit men's basketball team to just its second regional championship in program history. The freshman averaged 19 points for the tournament, featuring a 23-point effort in an 82-80 victory at Bunker Hill.

Edouard shot 48 percent from the floor and 52.6 percent from 3-point range, making 10 of 19 from beyond the arc. He also averaged 5.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.5 steals over the two-game stretch.

With the Region 21 title, the Warriors advance to the NJCAA National Tournament for the first time in the 50 years of basketball at Massasoit.
