A serious knee injury nearly ended Efe Abogidi's basketball career but he's now back on the NBA draft radar. The 19-year-old Nigerian is known for his high-flying dunks and plays for Washington State in the Pac-12. But his journey from West Africa to the West Coast was atypical with stops in Senegal and Australia. He tore knee ligaments during a tournament Down Under and spent two years there with the NBA Global Academy to rehabilitate. He had three surgeries but this season the 6-foot-9 freshman has started all 26 games for the Cougars. He says he has NBA potential but adds that “I have a lot of stuff to work on.”
