Osinachi “Osi”Nwackukwau, 6’4”, 190, Guard/Wing, Freshman


On July 4th 1997, Osinachi was born in Lagos, Nigeria.  He and his family moved to Fremont, California in June of 2003 when he was 6 years old.  By the time he reached high school he played basketball in San Leandro High School where he led his team to a number of great years as  well as playing AAU basketball with the Oakland Rebels and Lakeshow.  Part of Osi’s success is due in part to his unique physical attributes; 

  1. Wingspan: 6’8″
  2. Total Reach: 8’3″
  3. Vertical Jump: 30″
  4. Lane Agility Speed: 12.3 sec.

Antelope Valley College has been watching Osi for a number of years.  However he decided he would give a Prep School, DME Academy, in Daytona Beach, Florida a try when graduated.  Leading his team in 19 games at DME, he had PPG = 28.6, RPG = 8.6, APG 3.0.



AVC received a phone call from Nwackukwau this spring and Osi had decided that he wanted to play basketball for Antelope Valley College. 

Osi’s goal is to get his AA at AVC and his University degree at a D-1 university.  After that, his goal to play professional basketball that the highest level possible. 

Versatility is what Osi brings to AVC with his strength, scoring, ball handling and rebounding in any of three positions as the need arises.  Welcome Osi.

Osi’s conditioning has improved impressively and it has improved the freshmen’s game on both end of the court.  A player to watch.  The university coaches are.
