He is a resident of Switzerland. That’s one reason Michael Kessens didn’t appear on recruiting lists. He didn’t start playing basketball until he was 16. That’s another reason. And a couple of years ago, he was 3 inches shorter than his current 6-foot-9.

Kessens, 21 and a Longwood University freshman, showed up late for college hoops, but made a splash. The athletic big man averages 13.5 points and 10.8 rebounds for the Lancers (1-5). Those stats are watered down by a two-point, four-rebound game against Creighton. Kessens committed early fouls and played only 14 minutes. He scored 17 and grabbed 11 rebounds against Arkansas, and had 20 and 14 last time out, against Cornell.
