LOS ANGELES -- The 2012-13 LMU men's basketball season is just four days away with the season opener at Gersten Pavilion on Nov. 9. Lions' All-Access continues its feature Inside the Lions, a look at this year's roster. This episode features junior Godwin Okonji.

 

 

With 64 games already under his belt in just two seasons, Okonji enters his junior season an experience leader for the Lions. He has led the team in blocks the last two seasons and is already eighth all-time in LMU history. He has averaged right around four points and five rebounds over his two years and has become a defensive stopper for the Lions.

But as he enters his third season, he has focused on his offensive game in the off-season, using the work ethic instilled in him from his upbringing in Lagos, Nigeria.

While LMU has "given me so much," says the junior forward, Lagos, Nigeria is his core. Check out the entire video on Lions' All-Access.

LMU will open their season on Friday, Nov. 9 when they host Pacifica at Gersten Pavilion with tip-off set for 7 p.m. The Lions will then travel to face SMU on Sunday, Nov. 11 to finish the opening weekend of play. Season tickets are still available, including special Friends and Family pricing. Visit the Ticket Homepage for more information.
