Nigerian Basketball Player Sean Obi Already Gearing Up for Duke’s Next Season
Obi is a rare transfer into coach Mike Krzyzewski’s program and can’t play this season due to NCAA rules. He can practice so he gets to go up against star freshman Jahlil Okafor when the Blue Devils scrimmage.
“He tells me, ‘Sean I need you to, if you can hurt me, hurt me. Play me really hard,'” Obi said Sunday. “We do stuff with the coaches after practice. I give him that test every day in practice. He’s definitely benefitted from it. And I have benefitted from it, too.”
Obi has come a long way in a short time, both on the court and off.
