How do you view Alex Oriakhi?

Once a hero for the 2011 national champions, Alex Oriakhi won’t win any popularity contests in Connecticut these days.

I caught up with Oriakhi Tuesday, and he discussed his comfort level at Missouri, his career at UConn and, of course, the upcoming NCAA tournament. Oriakhi and the ninth-seeded Tigers open with eight-seed Colorado State on Thursday. With a win, they could face Louisville, the No. 1 overall seed.

“It’s a blessing to play in the tournament because a lot of people are at home watching on spring break right now,” Oriakhi said.

    Well, I hope the transfer was satisfying to him. Despite he and the other significant transfers that Missouri had this year, they had an up & down year and got bounced in their first game. Let’s see if all that exposure gets him drafted…I’ll bet that it doesn’t. After watching his play briefly yesterday, he still gestures and complains when he is called for a foul….some things never change!
