Lexington: Obie Seeing You

By - March 15, 2007

Central Connecticut State senior Obie Nwadike just left the game at the 4:35 mark to a modest ovation.

As a member of the United States Basketball Writer's Association, I vote on an 10-player All-District team (my district encompasses Connecticut, New Jersey, New York and Washington, D.C.) in addition to a 10-player All-America team during the first week of March. Nwadike, who played under legendary prep coach Bob Hurley at St. Anthony's (N.J.), was one my All-District selections for this season. In leading the Blue Devils to their third-ever NEC championship, the Jersey City native averaged a double double (14.8 points and 10.9 rebounds) despite his modest 6-foot-4 frame.

Needless to say, his production -- and personality -- will be missed in New Britain.
