            Six-foot-6 freshman forward will sit out 2005-06 season

 

TUCSON, Ariz. ?- The University of Arizona men's basketball coach Lute Olson today announced that Fendi Onobun has elected to redshirt during the 2005-06 season.

 

Onobun, a 6-foot-6, 239-pound freshman forward from Houston, Texas, averaged 16.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.0 blocked shots per game last season as a senior at Alief Taylor High School.  He will have four years of eligibility remaining at the University of Arizona.

 

“Fendi is going to be a great player for us,” said Olson.  “This decision gives him a chance to grow and develop so that he can be a far more productive player for us next season.”

 

Fifteenth-ranked Arizona (2-2, 0-0 Pac-10) returns to action Saturday, Dec. 3, at Houston.  Tip-off is scheduled for 6 p.m. CST and can be seen nationally on ESPN2.
