Basketball hoops had a tough week.

In California, 2017 recruit Cody Riley shattered a backboard with a left-handed dunk attempt at a summer showcase. Over in Charlottesville, Virginia, at the NBPA Top 100 Camp, Udoka Azubuike, one of the top big men in the Class of 2016, nearly brought down the entire goal with a strong, one-handed slam.

The 6-foot-11 Azubuike holds offers from Florida State, Kansas and Wake Forest and is considered the No. 13 overall player in the class, according to Rivals.

In 17 games in the Nike EYBL, Azubuike is averaging 13.8 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game for the Georgia Stars, a team that will compete in next month’s Peach Jam.

Class of 2016 big man Udoka Azubuike has emerged as a top-ten player in the class this spring. The 6-foot-9, 260-pound Azubuike is currently the No. 7 player in the class, according to Rivals, and the native of Jacksonville, Florida had a productive spring with Nike Team Florida.

Azubuike averaged 13.9 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game in 16 EYBL games this spring and also shot 71 percent from the field.

Florida and Florida State would love to keep Azubuike in the Sunshine State, but other schools from across the country will check out the center in the next few weeks during the live evaluation period.
