Aseh Nshom, Staff Writer

Hey Guys! My name is Aseh. If there's one thing I enjoy, it's talking basketball with other college hoops fanatics. I'm originally from Seattle, Washington. I've been an avid fan of the sport since the Seattle Supersonics were conference contenders in the mid 90’s. Since then, I've really enjoyed following NCAA teams. I find it to be more centered on teamwork and cohesion. I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh (a proud member of the ACC). I look forward to covering all that is ACC Men's Basketball. The 2014-2015 season should be one for the ages.

About FanSided

FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
