Idowu spent four years at NCAA DI school Saint Peter’s having started all 32 games in his senior year with averages of 11.0 points and 5.6 rebounds, whilst passing 100 career blocks.
The 23-year-old helped his team win the CIT post-season title in 2017 having received his first national call-up the previous summer with the New York-born forward making the GB Under-20s roster.
Naestved had a 13-11 record in the top-flight before the season was ended due to the coronavirus pandemic with Bakken Bears named champions.
