ORU Signs F Chris Angsomwine

November 13th, 2009

TULSA—Chris Angsomwine (Accra, Ghana) has signed a National Letter-of-Intent to play basketball at Oral Roberts University, head coach Scott Sutton announced today.

A 6-9, 215-pound forward at Kilgore (Texas) College, Angsomwine is ORU’s first 2010 signee. He will have two years of eligibility when he enrolls next fall.

“Chris fills a significant need for us for the future,” said Sutton. “With (current senior) Kevin Ford graduating at the end of the year, we wanted to try and get the best athletic big man we could find and Chris certainly fits the bill.”

Angsomwine is in his first year with Rangers after spending last season at Harcum College in suburban Philadelphia. Kilgore is 2-0 with Angsomwine averaging 6.5 points and 7.5 rebounds per game.

“He’s a shot blocker who can rebound,” said Sutton. “Chris is not a great scorer yet, but his offensive game is improving. He’ll get better this year while playing at a top quality program and be ready to contribute next year.”

As a freshman at Harcum he averaged 1.2 points and 1.9 rebounds while playing in 15 games for the Bears
