A 6'2" (1.88 m) 165 lb (75 kg) point guard, he went on to play with the Yakima Sun Kings in the CBA in 1998.[2]

In 2006, Othick was part of group developing a film based on the life of his former high school and college teammate, the late Bison Dele (then known as Brian Williams),[1] who presumably died during a boat trip in 2002.
