Gabriel Olaseni (#0, Iowa junior center)

The focus will be mostly on the starting seven-foot center, Adam Woodbury, but don’t discount Olaseni. He’s third on the team in rebounding (63) and boasts an incredible 32 offensive rebounds already this season. Oh yeah, on defense he also leads the team with 23 blocks.
