Kentucky basketball loses forward Ugonna Onyenso to transfer portal

Kentucky forward Ugonna Onyenso will seek greener pastures elsewhere, entering the transfer portal after just one season with the program, according to multiple published reports Wednesday.

When reached by text Wednesday, a spokesperson for the men’s basketball program told The Courier Journal they could not confirm Onyenso’s transfer “at this time.” He’s the second Wildcat to transfer since the end of the season, joining point guard Sahvir Wheeler, who entered the portal March 27.

Onyenso never was expected to be a key piece of last season’s rotation after reclassifying to enter college a year early. He played sparingly with upperclassmen Oscar Tshiebwe and Lance Ware in front of him at center. A 6-foot-11, 255-pound big man, Onyenso finished the 2022-23 campaign having appeared in 16 games, averaging 6.9 minutes an outing.
