About Josh Uduje

The London, England native started his college career at Coastal Carolina in 2021. Uduje played two seasons for the Chanticleers before he transferred to Utah State ahead of the 2023-24 season. In his final year at Coastal Carolina, the guard averaged 13.3 points per game.

He played in 64 games for the Chanticleers and started in 39 of those contests.

Last season, Uduje played in 35 games for the Aggies, including 10 starts. He recorded 8.7 points per contest on 42.5 percent shooting. Uduje also averaged 2.5 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.3 blocks, and 0.8 steals in 24.0 minutes per game.

The junior helped the Aggies to a 28-7 record, including 14-4 in Mountain West Conference games. USU captured the regular season Mountain West title.

Uduje and the Aggies earned a bid to the NCAA Tournament as a No. 8 seed. USU defeated No. 9 TCU in the first round of the tourney before getting eliminated by No. 1 Purdue in the Round of 32.
