Oregon Basketball Adds Georgetown Starting Center Supreme Cook to Roster

The Ducks have made a significant addition to their roster for the next season. Following the NCAA’s denial of N’Faly Dante’s appeal for a sixth season, Oregon quickly secured a replacement with Supreme Cook, a starting center from Georgetown.

Supreme Cook, a senior and experienced starter from both Georgetown and Fairfield, has committed to the Ducks. He announced on social media, “I will be finishing my academic and athletic career at the University of Oregon. I would like to thank my family, the New Jersey Roadrunners, the Oregon Men’s Basketball staff, and everyone who has helped me reach this point. Go Ducks!”

Cook visited Oregon last weekend before the news about Dante and was ready to commit if a scholarship was available. The 6-foot-9 forward is set to compete for starting minutes at power forward or center.

At Georgetown last year, Cook averaged 10.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, and shot 58 percent from the field. He led the Big East with 3.8 offensive rebounds per game and ranked fourth in total rebounds with 8.0 per game. Cook started all 32 games for Georgetown, averaging a career-high 27.2 minutes per game. Before Georgetown, he played three seasons at Fairfield, appearing in 91 games, starting 73, and recording 910 points on 53.0 percent shooting and 680 rebounds.

Cook is Oregon’s fourth transfer portal addition for next season, joining Stanford’s Brandon Angel, Toledo’s Ra’Heim Moss, and Villanova’s TJ Bamba. All four transfers are expected to compete for starting minutes.
