FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- He was almost forgotten heading into last spring, another player on a summer basketball team pushed down the bench in an environment where starters play a lot of minutes and every possession is a chance to be noticed.

Slowly, though, Amanze Egekeze (Lake in the Hills, Ill./Huntley) started to find himself even though he was the third man off the bench for the Illinois Wolves when he started playing summer basketball with the team last season. The aggressiveness Egekeze needed at the time was there, but the skills he had to have were still raw.

So he worked and he soon realized if he pushed enough, he could play basketball in college.
