St. Joseph’s center C.J. Aiken will bypass his senior season to pursue a professional basketball career. The 6-foot-9 Aiken averaged 10.4 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.6 blocked shots for the 18-14 Hawks.
"After lengthy meetings with C.J. Aiken and his family, C.J. has decided to pursue a career in professional basketball,” coach Phil Martelli said in a statement. “There will always be a place in my heart for C.J. I wish him well in all his future endeavors."
Aiken, the Plymouth Whitemarsh product, is seen as somebody who has one major skill for the NBA level – his ability to block shots.
Yet he doesn’t have a post game and has a small forward’s game consisting of jump shots and dunks.
