When you’re a university basketballer vying for a place in the NBA draft for next season, the one thing you want to consistently do is make positive headlines for your performances.

One perfect example of such an approach can be found by simply YouTubing the name Ovie Soko.

The Duquesne University senior has amassed a healthy average of 18.9 points and 8.8 rebounds per game, and one look at the video above will prove just why.

Watch the video above and make up your own mind..
