Ibekwe also represented Nigeria at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) this year.
He is a very experienced player. And here thanks to pro basketball Ibekwe experienced life in nine different countries playing on five different continents. He is familiar with European, Asian, Latin American, Australian and of course North American leagues. Ibekwe has played previously professionally in France, Israel (Ironi Ashkelon), Lebanon (Sagesse and Byblos), Puerto Rico (Manati), Russia (Krasny Oktyabr), Spain (Gipuzkoa), Australia (United and New Zealand Breakers) and Turkey (Bandirma Kirmizi).
He attended University of Maryland until 2007 and it is his tenth season in pro basketball.
Let's have closer look into Ibekwe's outlook: A long, lean dynamic post player with unlimited athletic potential. a talented shooter for his size who can take the ball to the basket and score in the post ... a high-flying finisher and shot blocker.
