    Okoro Update

    Okoro getting some publicity for his defense. His team will also be playing some nationally ranked competition in Florida this weekend. Hopefully Okoro will earn himself a little national attention down there in the sun.


    Okoro, St. Ray's welcome Stepinac to 'AA' with hard-fought win

    Kerwin Okoro emphatically blocked Archbishop Stepinac star Josh James, the ball went out of bounds and Okoro got in James’ face with a howl.

    The Crusaders coaches wanted a technical foul and St. Raymond coach Oliver Antigua made the signal for Okoro to use his head. But the Iowa State-bound swingman was fully in control.

    “That’s just an example of me showing passion for getting a stop defensively,” Okoro said. “I feed off the crowd. That’s what it comes down to. Sometimes I want to get a stop more than I want to get a bucket.”

    Antigua put the 6-foot-5 Okoro on James, a speedy guard with several mid-major Division I offers, in the fourth quarter and the junior standout managed just two field goals. St. Ray’s would hold on for a 62-56 win over Stepinac in CHSAA Class AA boys basketball Friday night in The Bronx.

    Sweet. I hope he brings it defensively. We can use a pit bull or two to help elevate the toughness and effort on that end.

    Defensive, rebounding work horses are the key. You can always get guys that can score, but you get a team with at least 3 of those guys and heads will turn.

    I agree. The team has lacked toughness ever since Homan and Stinson left. I think that Okoro and Niang are the first steps toward getting that back.
