Caballos de Cocle Aguadulce (LPB) strengthened their roster with addition of 31-year old American (has also Nigerian passport) power forward Ike Okoye (206-86, college: Boise State). He played last season at Penarol in Argentinian LigaA. In 10 games he recorded 4.7ppg and 3.6rpg. Good season as he was named League Player of the Week. Okoye also played for San Isidro (also in LigaA) where in 10 games he averaged impressive 20.5ppg, 10.0rpg, 1.5apg and 1.2bpg. He was also named League Player of the Week. The other team Okoye played that season for was Abejas (LNBP) in league. In 20 games he had 13.6ppg, 7.1rpg and 1.2apg. Great season indeed as he was voted to All-Mexican LNBP Honorable Mention and League Player of the Week. Another team Okoye played that season for was Al Karkh (Superleague) in league. In 10 games he got remarkable 20.5ppg, 10.0rpg and 1.5apg.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others Okoye won Chilean Liga Saesa championship title in 2016. He was also voted All-Chilean Liga Nacional Center of the Year back in 2015.
Okoye is quite experienced player. Thanks to his pro career he managed to play on four different continents (Europe, Asia, Latin America and of course North America) in eleven different countries. Okoye has played previously professionally in Estonia, Finland, Germany, Holland, Poland, Romania, Spain (Palencia Baloncesto), Uruguay, Chile (Deportivo Valdivia and CD Castro) and Bolivia (La Salle Tarija).
He attended Boise State until 2010 and it will be his ninth 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.

Luis Ibarra
Nicanor Alvarez
