The Yaounde, Cameroon, had a stellar freshman campaign at Kansas during which he was named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year after setting the KU freshman blocking record with 72 blocked shots. Embiid joined teammate Andrew Wiggins on the USBWA Freshman All-America Team. He finished second in the Big 12 in blocks (2.6) and sixth in rebounds (8.1) to add to his 11.2 scoring average. Embiid also set the KU freshman record in field goal percentage (62.6) and rebouding average (8.1) and led KU with eight double-doubles. A stress fracture (back) sidelined him for last six games, including Big 12 Championship and NCAA Tournament.
