Suemnick was named to the NJCAA All-American First-Team, while Federiko received Honorable Mentions. Mohamed Wague and Deshawndre Washington were also named to the first team, both holding offers from West Virginia. Wague visited Morgantown last weekend.

Through 34 games, Suemnick averaged 12.0 points and 6.1 rebounds for Triton College. The 6-foot-7 forward led the Trojans to the Final Four in the NJCAA Tournament, before losing to Washington’s Northwest Florida State team.
“I’m just someone who’s going to be versatile, bring energy,” Suemnick said. “I think the toughness that you normally see with a Bob Huggins team, that’s something I think I can bring back and restore. Obviously, we have guys like [Pauly] Paulicap and Gabe [Osabuohien], but we’re going to be losing a lot of that toughness.”
Federiko averaged 11.7 points, 8.6 rebounds and 1.9 blocks in 29 games. Federiko shot 59 percent from the field, but didn’t attempt a three-pointer all season. The JUCO prospect wants to expand his range at some points and become a consistent shooter at all three levels of the floor.
“I’m a rim protector, a defensive guy. I can run the floor, finish around the rim and play above the rim,” Federiko said. “I like to be athletic.”
Federiko committed to West Virginia back in February but hasn’t signed his National Letter of Intent yet.
