MIAMI (AP) — The mother of Miami Hurricanes center Ebuka Izundu is visiting from Nigeria and will get to see him play in a basketball game for the first time.
Ifeoma Izundu will attend Miami’s game against Pittsburgh on Tuesday, the college home finale for her son. The 6-foot-10 senior says he’ll try to get her a seat behind the bench.
