The 2018-19 season is over and although it didn’t end like we all would have wanted, I’m happy to have been part of it and proud of the team’s accomplishments. To my teammates, we are forever brothers. We went into the season a little unsure, but came out stronger. To Coach Mack and all the coaching staff, I can’t thank you enough for all the guidance and support. Your faith in me is what led to my improvement. To the city of Louisville, the University, and the fans, you are all amazing. The shout-outs and cheering and overall support really helped give the team confidence. The combination of my teammates, coaches, and fans held team 105 to its motto of being – tough, together, and unbreakable. Looking forward, I have decided to test the NBA draft waters. I am excited to receive feedback from the teams. With my strong Louisville foundation, I am excited for the future. Whatever happens, I am a Card for life. L1C4 🔴⚫️🐔

It’s important to note that Nwora will not be hiring an agent, which means he can still return for his junior season if he doesn’t get the feedback he’s looking for.

“Because of the ability to test the waters without losing eligibility, it seems like the perfect opportunity for me to try out with NBA teams and get feedback from them directly regarding my strengths and weaknesses,” Nwora told ESPN.

The New York native had a breakout season as a sophomore earning ACC Most Improved Player honors. Nwora averaged 17 points and 7.6 rebounds in 31.9 minutes per game.

ESPN ranks Nwora as the 76th best prospect in the 2019 NBA Draft.
