Cornell Daily Sun Confirms Report, Wittman to Forli, Italy

The Cornell Daily Sun has confirmed a report from The Cornell Basketball Blog earlier today that Ryan Wittman will join Forli in Italy for the 2010-2011 season. Wittman told the Sun, "From what I hear it's an amazing city, 30 min from Bologna which is another big city. I leave either Sept. 5 or 6th I think." He added, "I know they're in Italy's second division which is a very good league compared to other first divisions in other countries." Wittman also noted, "I think Scottie Reynolds is playing for a different team in the same league."

Good luck, Witt. To all alums, and returnees, and incoming folk: keep playing with all your heart.

The Italian 2nd division is known for being strong. I think Witt has a good opportunity to make some noise and potentially get "drafted" into a more competitive league.

Mevarcoolena's link, when translated into English by Google, is priceless. A sample line: "Who is it? Class 1987, white more white you can not, and whites in America who play basketball with them to make a mold: that of the shooter."

I can't help but be a bit disappointed about Witt playing in the B league in Italy, even if Scottie Reynolds is there too. Is that a consequence of waiting to the last minute, hoping that an NBA offer would come along? I see it is a one-year deal, so it seems like an interim arrangement since the NBA didn't work out this year.

Lin in the NBA and our boys overseas is a tough pill to swallow.

Really? I actually don't really care and don't get those that do. I'm pretty sure our players are mature enough not to feel bad about it either, or how you even have time to care when you're focusing on your own team or life.
