Chuck Ogbodo(High Point Christian Academy)
Michael Obacha(High Point Christian Academy)
Matthew Uchedike(Caldwell Academy)
Emeka Ikezu(Caldwell Academy)
Michael Kobani(Caldwell Academy)
*****Hearing great things about these kids off the court and on the court things could always be better for all of our local players and I’m sure if they keep on studying those Hakeem Olajawon tapes, their game will keep growing….College scouts are noticing these guys and Obacha has already committed to Appalachian State University….Ogbodo should be on his way to college next year too and if Kobani, Uchedike and Ikezu get some of their numbers up, they should be on the way up to DI, DII or DIII too….Uchedike had a game with 26 points and 10 rebounds earlier this season and Kobani’s #’s have been very steady most of the year….The Caldwell big men more than held their own the other night, versus HPCA……Caldwell needs to make a run and with their current record at (4-11) tomorrow night is the time to get moving….HPCA is at (15-0) and their next real big game will be Jaunary 24, at the Greensboro Day School…..Caldwel needs big minutes and big numbers from point guard Brett Manning down the stretch run….Manning has been playing extremely strong defense, but he will have to look to get off more shots and team with the ‘Nighitmares’ on the inside, to get this Caldwell Academy Eagle team turned around……
Expecting ‘Big Things’ from the ‘Big Men’ and all of the Eagles and Cougars, for the rest of the season and we will keep you up to date on the ‘Nigerian Nightmares’ and their progress for the rest of the year and be sure to let you know when those college recruiters are in the area…..
