Towson basketball transfer Chinedu Victor Uyaelunmo reunites with brother: 'I think we can do great things'

In their one season together at Calvary Christian Academy, Chinedu Victor and Chidi Solomon Uyaelunmo propelled the Fort Lauderdale school to a 23-6 record and Florida’s Class 5A boys basketball championship in 2016-17.

The Uyaelunmo brothers (pronounced Ooo-Yell-A-Mo) are hoping to recapture that magic for Towson University.

Chinedu Victor Uyaelunmo, a 7-foot, 220-pound center, officially transferred to the Tigers on Monday after spending the past two years at Southern California. Uyaelunmo, who is 16 months older than his brother, will have to sit out next season per the NCAA’s transfer rules, but will have two years of eligibility remaining.
