Femi Odukale Returns from Injury, Comes Off Bench Against Colgate

Published

on

PITTSBURGH — During Thursday night’s matchup against Colgate, Pitt guard Femi Odukale, who missed the team’s last game against Virginia, just checked in for the first time.

Odukale, who missed just one game with an ankle injury, is averaging the second-most points on the team this season, at 12.1 per game. The 6-foot-5 guard is also dishing out an average of 3.7 assists per game and hauling in four rebounds per contest.

For a team lacking guard depth, Odukale’s return is very significant for the Panthers, who could not afford to have him out for much longer. Behind him, guards Jamarius Burton and Onye Ezeakudo have been running the guard position, and both started the game tonight.

With Odukale out against Virginia, Burton scored 11 points in 39 minutes in the loss. Ezeakudo also contributed with a career-high eight points as well as a season-high 29 minutes in the loss in Charlottesville.

This is the worst roster in the ACC. Most of these guys should be playing for Point Park.

Since they just beat Colgate who beat Syracuse by 15, it would seem that Syracuse has the worst roster in the ACC.

that was a fluke. And besides that Cuse is no great shakes. 5-5. But still much better than Pitt. They will name the score against Pitt.

Really? Must have been another fluke when NC State only beat them by 3 in Raleigh. The fact is only five teams in the country have made more 3’s than Colgate & Pitt did an outstanding job defending the 3 on Thursday..

Pitt offense is better with this kid on the bench. He can’t perform most of the roles of a PG. he can’t shoot very well from anywhere on the court – 38%. Worse from 3 – 29%, terrible FT shooter – 59%. And avg’s almost as many turnovers as assists. I rest my case
