Seton Hall: Center Ike Obiagu transferring from Florida St.
SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. (AP) — Seton Hall is getting a shot-blocking center for its basketball team.
Coach Kevin Willard announced Thursday that Ike Obiagu will transfer from Florida State and continue his education and basketball career with the Pirates. The 7-footer must sit out the 2018-19 season and will have three years of eligibility.
Obiagu appeared in 34 of 35 games and made 14 starts for Florida State as a freshman. He averaged 2.3 points, 2.6 rebounds and a team-best 2.1 blocks.
The Nigerian’s top performance came in the regular-season finale against Boston College, when he had seven blocked shots and 12 rebounds, both career highs. His 71 blocks were the third-most by a freshman and seventh-most by any Seminole.
Seton Hall returns starter Myles Powell from a team that went to three straight NCAA Tournaments.
