Junior college statistics can be deceiving, and so it was with the case of power forward Godwin Owinje.

Following the success of junior college products Brian Kelly, George Butler, and Jerome Williams, Georgetown added Owinje to the roster in the fall of 1995. Owinje was a junior college All-American, averaging 24 points and 16 rebounds at Bismarck (ND) State, along with a pair of conference MVP titles and consecutive entries to the conference's all-academic team. As a junior, he sat behind an future NBA front line of Othella Harrington and Jerome Williams, averaging just 1.2 points a game, shooting just 28 percent from the field. Harrington and Williams graduated in 1996, but Owinje's court time as a senior plummeted along with his shooting. He shot just 2 of 17 from the field as a senior, reducing his impact to just three points in ten games. He ended his college career with just 35 points in 35 games.

Following graduation, Owinje played basketball overseas before returning to the Washington area in 2003. He is the president of two companies: Radar Hoops International, which is a recruiting organization for African players seeking college and pro basketball opportunities, and Apex Capital Group LLC, a residential real estate firm in Bowie, MD.
