Cincinnati Bearcats basketball coach Wes Miller has added some toughness, size, and grit to his squad with this new pair of transfers.

Cincinnati has announced the addition of two new players to its roster, both of whom were contributors and legitimate big men in power conferences.

The first addition in 6’9 junior Odinakachim Oguama. He is a muscularly-built power forward who started for two years at Wake Forest. Last year, Oguama averaged roughly 8 points and 5 rebounds per game for the Demon Deacons.

Adding further front court strength is the addition of fifth year senior center Abdul Ado.

Ado is a 6’11 defensive powerhouse who spent four years with the Mississippi State Bulldogs of the SEC. As a senior, he earned All-SEC defensive honors, which was the culmination of four years of impressive work as a starter for the Bulldogs. On the offensive end, Ado was never quite as adept. As a senior, he averaged just under 6 points per game.
