Basketball Pelicans Reunite as Host and Guest on Podcast


Former Loomis Chaffee boys basketball player Nelson Boachie-Yiadom ’17, now a junior forward at Davidson College, was featured last month on the debut episode of No Cap – The Podcast, which is hosted by Nelson’s former Pelican teammate Adeleke Karera ’18, a sophomore forward at Saint Lawrence University.

Adeleke interviewed Nelson about his experiences playing basketball in England, where Nelson grew up; playing for the English national program; going through the Division I college recruiting process; and attending and playing for Davidson.

The former teammates also talked about their experience as international students at Loomis. Adeleke is from Winterthur, Switzerland.

You can listen to the entire podcast as these two alumni catch up, share some laughs, and relive their days playing together in Olcott Gym.
