Oladapo played in 15 games for Pitt in his lone season for the Panthers, averaging 3.3 points and 1.9 rebounds per game. In his limited action, he was very efficient inside with the ball, hitting 20 of his 25 field-goal attempts on the year. Prior to his season at Pitt, Oladapo was one of the best forwards in the Horizon League, starting over 50 games in two seasons for Oakland and averaging 12.9 points and 8.8 rebounds per game in his sophomore season there.
NC Central finished last season with a 16-15 record, going 8-5 in conference play. The Eagles are coached by long-time head coach and school alumnus Levelle Moton, who has led the program to four NCAA Tournaments in his tenure at the helm.
