Norense Odiase

Norense Odiase was a solid force in the post for the Red Raiders. But there were several times when he was neutralized by taller defenders in conference play. Odiase must work on post moves near the basket, because unlike in high school, he can no longer bull his way through defenders.

It would also help him to shed some of his baby fat and replace it with muscle, as this will help his agility and conditioning making it possible for his minutes to increase.  Odiase must also work on his defensive footwork to avoid foul trouble.
