LOS ANGELES -- With the 2012-13 LMU men's basketball season just six days away with the season opener at Gersten Pavilion on Nov. 9, Lions' All-Access and Inside the Lions continues to take a look at this year's roster, up next is junior Ayodeji Egbeyemi.
In his first two seasons, Egbeyemi has played 58 games while averaging right around five points a game in the process. However, its the four games he missed at the end of 2011-12 due to a hand injury and the following surgery that has given him the biggest lessons on the court heading into 2012-13. And that is just a part of his journey.
Over the past five years, the Lagos, Nigeria, has made a journey from his home in Africa, through Washington D.C for high school to now his third season at LMU. During his journey, Los Angeles, LMU and the men's basketball team has become his home and family. However, his ties to home and who is his true center has never changed.
