While his teammates have been preparing for this coming fall with offseason restrictions, Kenneth Ogbe has gotten to enjoy some actual competition.
The 6-foot-6 guard has been playing in Greece for the last two weeks, suiting up for his homeland of Germany in the U-20 FIBA European Championship. The Germans didn't fare terribly well, finishing 14th overall with a 52-47 loss to Russia on Saturday, but Ogbe had a few flashes of promise in his nine games for his country.
Ogbe was a role player in the tournament, averaging 4.9 points and 4.2 rebounds per game in about 22 minutes per game. His biggest games came against tournament-runner up Spain (10 pts, 4 reb, 2 assts) and the Czech Republic (9 pts, 4 reb, 4 assts). In the tournament finale against Russia, Ogbe scored 8 points and was Germany's second-leading scorer.
