Being away from the computer this weekend I completely missed the fact that former Boiler player Jonathan Uchendu was killed in a hit and run accident in Little Rock, Arkansas. Today when I was catching up on my reading I stumbled across a blurb on Hammer and Rails talking about his death. He apparently was walking down the road when he was hit and killed. The driver of the vehicle fled the scene. Not much else is known at this time about the accidnet. Uchendu played for the Boilers as a freshman in 2006-2007 before trying to transfer to Arkansas-Little Rock. Apparently something happened during that process, and he never played basketball again. Uchendu seemed like a good enough kid, but just didn’t fit our system at the time. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends for their loss. Uchendu was only 22.
