Alex Oriakhi Could End Up On Tobacco Road

Alex Oriakhi's request for a release from his scholarship was granted by UConn on Tuesday, meaning that the 6-foot-9 junior will have one year of eligibility at his new school. But how quickly he is able to get on the court is the real question here. If Connecticut is allowed to take part in the '13 tournament, then Oriakhi will have to abide by normal transfer rules and therefore will not be eligible to play in 2012-13. The smart money right now is that Oriakhi is looking hard at a destination on Tobacco Road, more specifically North Carolina. (Searching for Billy Edelin)
