Minnesota's Daniel Oturu makes decision on future with Gophers
Minnesota center Daniel Oturu has made a decision regarding his future with the Golden Gophers.
According to ESPN NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski, Oturu plans to enter the 2020 NBA Draft and forgo his final two seasons at Minnesota. The Gophers center was considered one of the top post players in the B1G last season.
Oturu averaged 20.1 points, 11.3 rebounds and just over 2.5 blocks per game last season while shooting 56 percent from the floor. He was a second-team All-B1G selection after averaging a double-double on the year.
The 6-foot-10 sophomore recorded 18 double-doubles on the year. While Oturu did a good portion of his work around the basket and inside the paint, he also established the ability to knock down long shots at time, hitting the 3-point shot at a 36.5 percent clip for the year.
Minnesota finished the season with a 15-16 record and an 8-12 mark in B1G play.
