- In covering last night's NBA summer league action, the Ithaca Journal notes:
Former Cornell basketball player Ryan Wittman scored six points in his NBA Summer League debut with the Boston Celtics on Tuesday in Orlando, Fla.
Wittman went 3-for-4 from the field in 10 minutes, 35 seconds of playing time in the Celtics' 86-69 loss to Philadelphia.
He missed the first shot he took -- a 3-pointer in the first quarter -- and connected on his next three field goals, all late in the fourth quarter.
He also recorded an offensive rebound, a steal and a turnover.
Wittman, who graduated in May, did not play in Monday's AirTran Always Pro Summer League game against Oklahoma City.
Boston plays Charlotte at 1 p.m. Wednesday.
Evan Turner, the No. 2 overall pick in the NBA Draft last month, had 13 points and four assists for the 76ers.
