Alon Abisola Arisicate Ajoke Olajuwon, better known as Abi Olajuwon (born July 6, 1988 in Houston, Texas) is an American female basketball player who formerly played for the Chicago Sky. She now plays abroad for the Romanian club CSM Satu Mare, signing a 4 months contract at the start of 2011.[1]

Olajuwon is the daughter of former NBA center Hakeem Olajuwon. Olajuwon's full name means "born in wealth and loved by all".[2]


Olajuwon played varsity basketball for her Californian high school, Marlborough School, and helped her team win three consecutive Southern Section titles. Olajuwon was a 2006 McDonald's All-American,[2] and was one of the most prized recruits of the 2006 graduating high school class.[2][3] She played college basketball at the University of Oklahoma, and ESPN basketball analyst Nancy Lieberman stated before the 2006-07 season that the addition of Olajuwon would help propel the Sooners into contention for the NCAA championship.[4]
