Princeton Middle Blocker Junior Oboh Returns to Lineup

Princeton’s early season struggles continued as they dropped to 1-4, but they did get some good news from the last match as 2017 All-EIVA middle blocker Junior Oboh returned to action.

Oboh was noted as being out in the opener of the season and missed the first four matches of the 2018 season. He finally returned in the team’s only match this week against Fort Wayne.

Unfortunately for Princeton, Oboh’s return wasn’t enough to spark a victory as the Tigers were upset by Fort Wayne in a sweep fashion. He was limited to seeing time in two of the three sets and only saw five swings, but he did knock down three kills while hitting .400.

Oboh earned a spot on the All-EIVA team in 2017, which was his second honor on the list when tacking on an award from 2015. That 2017 accolade came from a year in which he recorded 168 kills (1.79 per set), 83 blocks (0.88 per set) and 18 aces (0.19 per set) while hitting .432.

It’s unclear if Oboh was 100 percent for the match, especially since he didn’t play in all three sets. It is a good sign though that he did play though considering that the Tigers don’t play again until January 31 at UC San Diego.
