Of Oriakhi and Calipari

Here's a story from today's Register about UConn freshman Alex Oriakhi, who is finally a UConn student after committing to the school nearly three years ago, when he was 16. Like Emeka Okafor, Oriakhi was born in the U.S., but both his parents were born in Nigeria. One of the main reasons his father wanted him to come to UConn was because of Okafor.

Also, found this story from the ProJo earlier in the week to be interesting. Like most college basketball observers, I have my questions about John Calipari and the way he runs his program(s). But this column by Bill Reynolds certainly reveals a human side to Coach Cal.
