He started the season at CD Valdivia in Chilean Liga Nacional. In 9 games he recorded 14.9ppg, 12.4rpg and 1.4apg this season.

The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others he was voted Latinbasket.com All-Chilean Liga Nacional Center of the Year in 2015.
Okoye is quite experienced player. Thanks to his pro career he managed to play on three different continents (Europe, Latin America and of course North America) in ten different countries. Okoye has played previously professionally also in Estonia (TLU/Kalev), Finland, Germany, Holland, Poland (Stelmet), Romania, Spain (Palencia Baloncesto and Sammic Iraurgi Saski Baloia), Argentina (Sport Club) and Bolivia (La Salle Tarija).
He attended Boise State until 2010 and it is his seventh season as a professional player.
The scouts decsribe him following way: Ike is a triple threat post man - scorer. He can score with his back to the buck with good footwork. He can face up and shoot or face up and drive to the rim and finish. He is fast in transition and aggressive on rebounds especially defensive rebounds. Good court vision and goog basketball IQ. Great character on and off the court.
