Michael Ojo: The Key to Florida State’s Offense?

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

That title is not a misprint. The 7′ 1″ Nigerian averaging less than two points a game is absolutely integral to the Seminoles’ ability to put points on the board. As is fellow international head-topper Boris Bojanovsky, whose career points-per-game come in at a blistering four.

Why? Because while the act of putting the ball through the hoop is the final — and most glorified — aspect of scoring, there are other elements that contribute to a team’s ability to generate offense. When FSU stagnates, it’s usually because players are struggling to free themselves from their defenders. And that brings us to screens– which are often set by players like Ojo and Bojanovsky, particularly the former.

And thus the question: with his beyond-imposing frame (he’s officially listed at 292 pounds), has FSU ever featured a better screener? Open jumpers for players like Ian Miller and Aaron Thomas may suggest that the answer is no, but, for now, the debate can begin in the comments section below.
