CW Staff

On Monday, men’s basketball coach Avery Johnson announced the addition of Southern Illinois forward Bola Olaniyan to the program for the 2016 season. He is the second graduate transfer, alongside Morehead State’s Corban Collins, to join the team since last season ended.

Olaniyan earned a spot on the Missouri Valley Conference Most Improved Team after he finished 2016 as one of the league’s top rebounders. 

“We are just thrilled to have Bola join our team,” Johnson said. “His experience and leadership are going to be very valuable for us. We wanted to upgrade in the area of rebounding and that’s one of Bola’s strengths.”
