Pepperdine Hoops Star Suffers Yet Another Season-Ending Injury

Amadi Undenyi

Pepperdine guard Amadi Udenyi suffered his second season-ending injury of his career, with the tearing of his right Achilles tendon during the Waves match against Portland State. The Oakland native tore his left Achilles tendon as a sophomore, which also caused him to miss the remainder of the season. 

Deemed “the heart and soul of the team” by Pepperdine coach Marty Wilson, Udenyi currently ranks 11th all-time in assists with a total of 331. In his six season appearances, the starter has averaged 6.7 points, 2.8 rebounds and a team-high 5.3 assists.

“[Udenyi] exemplifies the things that are important to me as a point guard,” Coach Wilson said about the senior in a statement provided to The Malibu Times. “His unselfish attitude on offense and his physical toughness and competitive spirit are what we will miss most on the floor.”

Udenyi is eligible to apply for a medical redshirt season and was scheduled to undergo surgery this week.
