After a 14-year career all over the world after graduating from Liberty, Julius Nwosu will probably wear the green and white jersey for the very last time. He is a real gentleman off the court but a warrior on it. Julius is a great rebounder, especially offensively. Now used as a backup, he helps his National Team most by doing things which don't show up on the stats sheet. He was part of the 1998 Nigerian team that played at the FIBA World Championship. But due to bad medication bought at a market in Lagos, he was suspended for doping and could not finish the tournament. Julius won the Russian league title in 1996 with CSKA Moscow, and the French league crown in 2001 with Pau-Orthez.

He was never fond of practising, but he always ready to give 120% when game time comes. Nwuso has played in 14 different countries during his career. Last season, he started with Asesoft Ploiesti in Romania (averaging 12.8 points and 9.8 rebounds in FIBA Europe Cup), before signing with Syrian club Al Jalaa Aleppo in February.
