Kok offers versatility in his height and skillset. He is about 6’6 and plays primarily on the wing. Kok had a solid junior year for the 17-7 Sailors. Kok averaged 11.4 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 3.3 assists, while running the point. Kok played terrific in the 61-56 upset over No. 2-ranked Godwin Heights in the Class B district championship game where led the Sailors with 21 points, including four 3-pointers and was clutch down the stretch from the free throw line, netting 6-of-7 in the game’s final minutes. He was named all-conference in the OK Gold.
He positions himself to receive kicks from drives and post-ups for open three-pointers. On the inside, he puts his long arms to good use by vying among bigs for rebounds and extending to complete contested lay ins. Kok can thread the needle with passes and has the moxie and a bit of flash to amp up a crowd. He showcases his IQ by seeing the floor very well, always looking to distribute. But his real strength is getting the ball in the paint, either to score or distribute, and could be the first option to score and win the game.
While always a creative offensive presence, his defense is solid. He is able to guard every position on the floor from posts and point guards, and everyone in between. South Christian Coach Jeff Meengs says, Conner can not only see the floor, but is a very smart and vocal leader. He was one of our best communicators on the floor.
Playing along side another backcourt standout teammate Luke Schotenboer this combo is going to be lethal this year. Look for college coaches to come sniffing around as the year goes along and the Sailors sail through the competition.
