Northwestern men's basketball adds Swopshire, Olah

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

            Louisville transfer Jared Swopshire and Romanian native Alex Olah of Traders Point Christian Academy in Zionsville, Ind. signed with Northwestern Wednesday.

            The 7-foot Olah averaged 18 points and 13 rebounds for Traders Point and also played in the 2011 FIBA U18 European Championships for Romania.

            Swopshire saw limited action this season for the national semifinalist Cardinals. Swopshire sat out his entire junior year with a groin injury that required surgery. Swopshire, who will graduate from Louisville in May, will be eligible to play for the Wildcats because of the NCAA's new transfer rule. A player does not have to sit out a year if they have graduated and they are working toward a graduate degree in a field that their original school does not offer.
