Seattle, Wash. -
Seattle University head men's basketball coach Cameron Dollar has announced that Shore Adenekan (London, United Kingdom) has committed to attend Seattle U and join the Redhawk men's basketball program starting in the 2013-14 academic year.
Adenekan is a 6'9", 235-pound forward currently attending Lamar Community College in Colorado, the same junior college that produced current Redhawks Tidjane Diop and Allen Tate. On Nov. 7 against Frank Phillips College, he shot 9-of-13 from the field and 8-of-9 from the free throw line for a 26-point, six-rebound effort.
During the 2011-12 season, Adenekan averaged 10.5 points and 8.1 rebounds per game, shooting 62.6 percent from the field. He came to the United States after graduating from Brampton Manor Academy in London.
"We are thrilled Shore has decided to join our family. He is a strong, physical low post player that is skilled inside and out," Dollar said.
Adenekan will have two years of eligibility remaining when he begins his time at Seattle University next year. He will join current freshman Jack Crook as natives of the United Kingdom to be on the Redhawk roster.
The Seattle University men's basketball team started its 2012-13 season with an 87-72 victory over Montana State last Sunday. The Redhawks leave Thursday for Charlottesville, Va., in preparation for Saturday's game against the University of Virginia starting at 4 p.m. local time (1 p.m. Pacific time) on ESPN3.com and 770 AM KTTH The Truth.
