Alex Okafor
Basket Esch (N2) strengthened their roster with addition of 26-year old American forward Alex Okafor (202-102kg-87, college: Princeton). He played last season at Union Rennes Basket 35 in French NM1 league. In 13 games he recorded very impressive stats: 16.5ppg, 7.7rpg, 1.8apg and 1.2spg.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as Okafor won Regional championship title in 2011. He was also voted Defensive Player of the Year in 2011 at his college time.
Okafor has played previously professionally in Germany (Wuerzburg) and ABA (Bay Area Matrix).
He attended Princeton University until 2012 and it will be his second season as a professional player.
The scouts decsribe him following way: Okafor is an extremely versatile player capable of playing multiple positions.
His combination of size, strength, length and athleticism makes for a tough matchup on offense and allows him to be a pest on defense everywhere on the floor.
Okafor likes to attack the rim and makes regular trips to the foul line because of his aggressiveness. He is an unselfish player with the unique ability to create for himself and others. Alex has the ability to post up smaller defenders, attack from the wing or turn and face against bigger players
Okafor has respectable midrange game in his repertoire and is a streaky shooter from distance.
He thrives in the open court using the combination of skill set and athleticism to make plays. Alex possesses equal dexterity with both hands inside 15 ft, which includes a full assortment of floaters, hooks, dunks, and finishes. He is tenacious rebounder with an explosive second jump.
Along the same lines he does not shy away from contact and embraces the chance to mix it up with other physical players.
Okafor's unique skill set reliable ball handler who is fully capable of relieving lead guard of management duties.
Okafor sometimes over-thinks the game instead of relying on instinct. He is not a consistent deep ball threat yet, but has greatly improved over the last year. Can be impatient at times when making offensive progressions
