Transfer Scouting Report

Adam Finkelstein
Adam Finkelstein Director of Scouting

Coming out of high school, Oweh was known as a strong and athletic wing who could attack downhill and had the tools to evolve into an impactful defender. Both of those things have proven to be true during his two years at Oklahoma. He started 9 of 28 games as a freshman, averaging almost 5 points in 13 minutes per night. This year as a sophomore, he started 28 of 32, played roughly 25 minutes per game, and averaged 11 points, nearly 4 rebounds, 1 assist, and 1.5 steals. He pushed those totals to 15 points per game in league play.

What was unexpected though, was the progression of his shooting, albeit in a very limited sample size. Oweh made just one three-pointer his entire freshman season. This year he made 20, while shooting 38% from behind the arc. The shooting is still a big variable in his game, but he’s progressed enough so that opposing defenses can’t leave him totally unchecked from behind the three-point line.

Oweh is still at his best getting downhill, playing through contact, and finishing above the rim. The extent to which he can force opposing defenders to close-out on him, only opens up those opportunities. Defensively, his size and strength make him not only impactful on and off the ball, but also versatile and capable of guarding multiple positions.

Has a tremendous physique. Is a powerful straight line driver who loves to get to the rim. Is tough in transition. Also is a reliable catch and shoot three-point shooter. Doesn't have a lot of wiggle with the basketball but makes plays in traffic. Adequate ball handler and passer. Is a tough, physical defender with versatility to guard the top non-center scorer on the opposition. Rebounds his position with strength.
