David Okeke is back on the floor! The 22-year-old Italian-Nigerian basketball player has just finished his first game, clinching a victory on his comeback. Considered by many one of the most promising young Italian prospect, he had a health problem that kept him out for three years.
Now Rutavi, the first team in the Georgian Superleague, gave Okeke space in their roster, and last Saturday he helped them gaining a victory against Mgzavrebi.
Okeke started playing basketball in Virtus Mortara at nine, then moved to Casale Monferrato at Borgomanero, Oleggio Basket and then moved to Auxilium Turin where he made his Serie A debut at 18 becoming immediately one of the key players of the team, also making his debut in Eurocup. In the summer of 2017 he was among the protagonists of the Italian national team that won the silver medal at the Under-19 World Cup and was then called up by the senior team of Meo Sacchetti.
