News and Notes: Sunday Edition

Below, some Sunday afternoon news and notes...
  • The Minneapolis Star Tribune writes, "When 6-foot-7 former Eden Prairie and Cornell scoring star Ryan Wittman went undrafted by the NBA on Thursday, it was the 15th straight year that the Ivy League went without having a player taken in the draft. The last Ivy League player taken in the NBA draft was Jerome Allen from Penn in the second round in 1995. Look for Wittman, who is being represented by Mark Termini, and also represents Washington Wizards coach Flip Saunders, to play for the Boston Celtics' summer league team in Orlando, Fla."

Graduated senior Ryan Wittman '10 has signed an NBA Summer League deal with the reigning Eastern Conference champion Boston Celtics. The Celtics, who lost in seven games to the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2010 NBA Finals, will play in the AirTran Airways Pro Summer League in Orlando, Fla., beginning on July 5.

Second-round draft pick Luke Harangody, an All-American out of Notre Dame, is expected to be among Wittman's teammates in Orlando.

Speaking of teammates, Cornell's Jeff Foote '10 has signed a three-year professional contract with Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv, a team that plays in the top European and Israeli first leagues, the highest division in Europe.

Both players were familiar faces on the NBA workout circuit this summer, but went undrafted in last Thursday night's NBA draft.

  • The Harvard Crimson notes, "Cornell’s Jeff Foote, who ... went undrafted... has already signed with the top Israeli club, Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv."

what's happening with Dale? I really hoped he would be included in all of seems like a repeat of when he played in HS and he was overlooked by a lot of universities.
