Brian Okam is a 7-0 junior center who was born in Nigeria and went to high school at Lake Highland, in Florida. Last year, he attempted four free throws and made two of them. Yesterday, he did that, which counts for twenty-eight missed free throws, six losses for Appalachian State, and a rescinded athletic scholarship for Okam. The Appalachian State Mountaineers are now a Division III program, and the university has closed satellite campuses in other parts of North Carolina, shuttering its masters program and reducing total enrollment by half. Appalachian State lost by six to Western Carolina.
Worth noting: Okam, according to his profile on goasu.com was rated "the nation's 15th-best prospect by ESPN upon graduation at Orlando's Lake Highland H.S."
