Kokko averaged 27.0 points per game in January, which was highlighted by a 33-point performance in a win against then-No. 5 ranked Ottawa. The diminutive guard raised his scoring average from 21.8 points per game at the start of the month to 24.1 at the end of January and currently sits third in U SPORTS in points per game.

The Rams guard has been efficient from three-point range all season and currently leads the conference and ranks fourth nationally in three-point field goal percentage. He also has been instrumental in getting his teammates involved and ranks fifth in the OUA in assists this year.

The No. 8 ranked Rams are now 12-6 on the season and are on track to come out of the OUA Central division for their 13th straight playoff appearance.
