Mainland Alum is among the top 10 sports centers

Osun Osunniyi, a former star of mainland high school basketball, has made a name for himself in Saint-Bonaventure.

He’s moved up the record books for career blocked shots, has a Twitter account that tracks all of his blocks, and on Friday night the No. 251 block of his career made SportsCenter’s Top 10, coming in at no. 9.

Osunniyi blocked Jayden Nunn’s shot above the team bench and about five rows deep in the crowd at Reilly Center.

He’s moving up the Bonnies’ stray shot block, passing former first-round pick Andrew Nicholson, with 248 blocks in his career.

It is 41 blocks from the school record of 289 set 22 years ago by Caswell Cyrus.

The 2017 Mainland graduate averaged 14.4 points and 11.4 rebounds per game as a senior, leading the Mustangs to a 22-6 record and could be drafted in this year’s NBA draft.
