Even though the Gophers men's basketball team has fallen way short of expectations this season, there's still reason to get excited about the program's future thanks to a local star who's having a monster senior season.
Daniel Oturu, a 6'10'' center from Cretin Derham Hall, put together an impressive highlight reel in his team's win over DeLaSalle on Saturday.
Oturu, the No. 48 recruit in the country according to 247 Sports, finished with 25 points, 15 rebounds and an astonishing 10 blocks for a triple-double as the Raiders improved to 18-1 on the season with the win.
According to MNBasketballHub, Oturu is averaging 18.0 points, 11.9 rebounds and 6.5 blocks per game this season.
