Notes:
Missed out on the 2010 NCAA Tournament after injuring his leg against Georgetown during the Big East Conference Tournament...Onuaku was one of the best field goal shooters in the nation this past year, converting a staggering 66.8 percent of his attempts, mainly because he rarely ventured outside of the paint on offense for the Syracuse Orange...Saw his rebounding (5.1 rpg) drop off considerably as a senior, after clearing better than eight boards per game as a sophomore and 7.3 rpg in 2008-09...While Onuaku was knocking down field goal attempts at an alarming rate this past season, his free-throw accuracy sank to a mere 42.9 percent, making him a liability on the floor late in close games...As far as defense was concerned, he played the part handed to him, clogging up the lane and making opponents think twice about taking the ball to the rim...Has a decent first step in the lane, but other than that his offense is quite limited and that lack of production does not translate well to the NBA...Onuaku had to battle through two previous knee surgeries in order to play a part in the success of the Orange the last few years.
