Thank you to @puma for supporting a dream from day 1, and getting me to Rwanda and back safely via Puma jet.
Thank you to the entire country of Rwanda and to the city of Kigali for hosting us. BEAUTIFUL land with BEAUTIFUL people. To anyone considering visiting or moving to the continent, from everything I saw and heard, I would recommend you consider Kigali and Rwanda in general.
Thank you to everybody that had kind words for me despite my inexperience.
I plan to get better.

Cole featured for the BBC Patriots as part of publicity stunts for the newly formed NBA spinoff. The Patriots went 2-1 in the group stage of the Basketball Africa League and Cole finished with a stat line of five points, three assists and five rebounds in 45 minutes, coming off the bench in the three preliminary matchups. Cole was only expected to appear in a minimum of three games so he fulfilled his contractual obligation to the Patriots, who have a playoff quarterfinal game on Thursday (May 27).
