As a continuation of the top in form players currently, we bring you the top small forwards in Nigeria basketball as presented by Coach Ojobo Owoicho.

The list came a bit late because the pressure was getting worse.

Ibeabuchi Sunday Agu

Arguably the most-priced player in the last decade with multiple national team appearances, you don’t need numbers to agree with his position at the top of the list.

However, to mention a few he averaged 16.8 points in the sweet 16 of Mark D’ Ball and 11.3 in the final 8 organized by the FMYSD.

Onmonya Mathew Ogenyi

While most people say he is a power forward, I prefer to classify him as a small forward based on his skill set.

He can conveniently play in all five positions on the court both on offense and defense.

He played a pivotal role for Gombe bulls at the Mark D ball Championship, where he was the leading rebounder for the team in a couple of games.

Second on the list of top small forwards in Nigerian basketball is;

He was the most productive player for the team during the Mark D Ball Championship, scoring 17 points in their game against Suleja Bull Dogs and that was one of the many times he had lead the team in scoring.

Lucky Subel

My favorite 6th man and arguably the best in this Era. Naturally plays as point guard, but can also and play in all five positions on the court at different levels.

Against Nile University during Mark D Ball championship, he scored 16 points of the bench and recorded a championship high 71.4% from the field.

He made 3/4 from beyond the arc, 5/7 two pointers and 3/4 free throws.

Michael Daramola

You might argue that he’s a point guard but I prefer to classify him as a small forward. He is Reigning MVP of the Mark D’Ball basketball championship. Need I say more? Nah!

Lastly but not finally on the list of top small forwards in Nigeria basketball, is none other than;

Wisdom Anyaoha

A key piece for Gombe Bulls, very good with breaking through defense.

A Big guard, I likened him to Marcus Smart, as he’s one of the best defenders in Nigeria.

His impact usually reflects on the numbers of who he is guarding during games.

Meanwhile, who is ranked too high or  too low? Who should or shouldn’t have made the list? let’s hear in the comment section.
