Osinachi “Osi” Nwachukwa, 6’4″, 205, Guard, Sophomore

JL0_7227When you have a player at 6’4”, 205 who has a wing span of a 6’8” player, a reach of 8’3” and a vertical jump of 30” with a joyful attitude about playing college basketball, you have much to build around.

Osi is so versatile that he can play anywhere from the 1-4 positions.  He is a great passer with floor vision,  outstanding ball handler, shot 37.5% from beyond the arc, averaged 7.9 ppg in his freshman year, pulled down 4.8 rebounds per game and by many was considered AVC’s best defensive player last year.

Osi reminds me of former AVC star, Ade Dagunduro who also led Antelope Valley to the state tournament then to the U of Nebraska on full scholarship,  to the Nigerian Olympic team and finally five years of professional basketball in Europe.
Mr. Versatility is going to be a thorn in the side of every team AVC’s plays this year on both ends of the court.  Head Coach Taylor says, “If Osi continues to improved this year and because of his academics and great attitude, he will be considered one of the best guards in JUCO Basketball this year.”

To put it simply, Osinachi, “Osi” Nwachukwa, 6’4″, 205 guard may have been the best player in the 2017 JUCO Shootout this past weekend.  He dominated on both ends of the court.  Special player.

Osi Nwachukwa had a special weekend as he  was invited to the Las Vegas Elite 80 JUCO Showcase.  He impressed the D-1 coaches with his ability to score and willingness to do the hard dirty work.   Two outstanding days showing he is an elite basketball player in JUCO basketball and ready to move up to the big time.

What do you need coach?  Osinachi Nwachukwa, 6’4″, 205 with a wingspan: 6’8″,
total reach: 8’3″,  vertical jump: 30″ may be the most versatile player AVC has had for a number of years. Extremely easy to coach, just tell him what you need.  Excellent academics;

  1. Do you need me to be your shut down defender?
  2. How about three steals a game?
  3. Want me to play the point guard?
  4. Want me to shoot the 3 ball?
  5. How about leading you in scoring?
  6. How about dragging down a bunch of rebounds for you?
  7. I can shut down the big power forward and score 20 points against him.

Osi showed he could do it all last year and in the Las Vegas Elite 80 JUCO Showcase this year really impressing the D-1 coaches.  Keep an eye on Osi as this is an elite college basketball player.
