  • In May of 2010, the Houston Hoops family lost a friend and teammate - Tobi Oyedeji. Tobi played with the Houston Hoops during the 2008 and 2009 seasons, and was looking forward to starting his college playing career with Texas A&M in the Fall of 2010.  Tobi was a loyal teammate with a beautiful smile and a wonderful personality.  He was always a joy to be around.  He will be missed and his spirit will always remain in our hearts.  Click here for a Houston Hoops tribute to Tobi.
