High School: Oak Ridge (NC) Military Academy
Notes: Sophomore center Joseph Uchebo posted a double-double in Oak Ridge Military Academy's blowout victory over Greenfield in Monday's MLK Scholastic Classic.
Unofficially Uchebo totaled 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting from the field and 14 rebounds. He also hit both free throws attempted and recorded four steals, a block, and an assist.
The 6-foot-11, 240-pounder just returned to the floor a couple of weeks ago after missing nearly the first two months of the season with a leg injury. He is still regaining his conditioning, but the tools he possesses are obvious.
Uchebo is an instinctive player who has a good feel for the game, particularly for a young big man. He moves his feet well on defense and has great hands. He also does a good job of securing rebounds and is an obvious presence on both ends of the floor.
Here are some highlights of Joseph Uchebo in action!
