Emptying the Notebook: Elite International Prospects Scouting Reports
October 19, 2012
Jonathan Givony

Strengths:
-Chiseled frame
-Very long arms
-Outstanding athlete
-Can faceup and attack off the dribble. Good in straight lines
-Tremendous finisher with a head of steam
-Great competitor on defense
-Goes after every rebound

Weaknesses:
-Limited offensive player
-Must improve advanced ball-handling skills
-Shooting mechanics are poor. Long, slow release

Outlook: Extremely athletic and well-built forward who is slowly converting from an undersized power forward to a power 3. We've seen him on a number of occasions starting at the U17 World Championship in Hamburg in 2010, at the U19 World Championship in Latvia in 2011, and at the 2012 EuroCamp and adidas Nations. Would have been an excellent mid-major college player with his brute strength and athleticism, but elected to go the pro route, signing with the Melbourne Tigers in the NBL.

FIBA U-17 World Championships: Top International Prospects
August 7, 2010
The only semi-intriguing long-term prospect on an otherwise underwhelming Australian team, Owen Odigie has the physical attributes to develop into a good player down the road, even though his skills obviously have a long way to go.

Standing 6-6 with a fantastic body and terrific athleticism, Odigie gets most of his playing time at the power forward position at this junior level, where he's more than capable of getting the job done. He's a tough, active, competitive guy who is able to defend multiple positions. He's extremely energetic crashing the glass and is a pretty good teammate. He gets in the passing lanes quite a bit, is a handful in transition and displays the traits of a very hard worker.

Offensively, Odigie is limited. He's an extremely poor perimeter shooter—something he showed over and over again—and isn't much of a ball handler either, unless he's operating in a straight line. He doesn't appear to have great instincts on the offensive end of the floor and will likely need to work very hard to improve this part of his game, something he's obviously capable of doing considering his age.
