NC A&T’s Femi Olujobi Leads Nation In Scoring

North Carolina A&T’s Femi Olujobi is leading the nation in scoring, averaging a whopping 28.3 points a game this season.

 

The 6-8 junior forward out of Long Island, NY, who has won three straight Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Player of the Week awards, has led the Aggies to a 5-1 record this season.

 

“This is a whole new team and whole new mindset, so we believe we can win any game that we come into,” Olujobi told the News & Record of the team’s best start since 1987-88.

 

This is Olujobi’s first season in the MEAC after transferring to NC A&T after his sophomore season with Oakland University.

 

“Femi is long and athletic [and] will bring some bounce and a high-flying act,” said his former Oakland head coach Greg Kampe. “He can score with his back to the basket, but what we really like, is he can also step out and make some jump shots too.”

 

A high school star at Brentwood (NY), Olujobi averaged 19 points and 13 rebounds as a senior during the regular season.

 

He then stepped it up in the state playoffs when he averaged a whopping 25 points and 15 rebounds.

 

For his outstanding play, was named to the All-Long Island Second Team that season.
