Marcellus Sommerville is still under contract to play for French pro team SLUC Nancy this season.....
Nancy just signed one of Cellus' old MVC rivals....Randall Falker signs a 1-year deal with SLUC Nancy after playing in Turkey last season.


Will Franklin also re-signed with Oradea in Romania

Theron Wilson's having a great season down under playing in the Australian league that runs during our summer...
He is one of the best players in the league but he definitely had a game to remember from the bad end of the spectrum...

He nearly set an all-time league record
"(Theron) fouled out in just 6min39sec of court time against the Blues. However
the record belongs to big man Seb Loader, who managed to foul out in just
under six minutes ..in 2010"

Chris Roberts was not offered a deal with the Jazz even though he starred in the summer league with them,
so Chris has now announced that he will sign a deal to play with a pro team in Italy next season...

Here are the details of Chris Roberts signing in Italy...the first team they have signed in the off season

Caserta - in Italy's top pro league is in a beautiful area of Italy (as if there's a lot of ugly areas!) near the Mediterannean, 25 miles from Naples.

He is an uptempo coach who has won D-League titles in the past - so hopefully it will help Zach's chances

some followup on BU guys

Theron Wilson still one of the best players, top scorers in the Aussie League
http://www.geelongadvertiser.com.au/...al_sports.html


A 'Where are they now' feature from Champaign newspaper has one ex-Brave and an ex-ISU guy
http://www.news-gazette.com/sports/i...05-illini.html


A POB mention in Boston Celtics history
http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/celti...sey-get-digits


and Chris Roberts did get an offer from Utah - but with no guarantee attached and a likelihood he'd start and possibly stay in the D-League, he chose the offer from the Italian team that was way better...


Lastly the local Sunday Basketball League for 2013-14 list the players they have thus far on their teams...
Many familiar names, Brian Lavin, Daniel Ruffin, Ryan Julius, Gavin Sullivan, DeAndre Miranda, Rodney Edgerson, Quentin Edwards, Breland McKnight (anyone remember the Bobby Knight connection?)

Joe B. McDade staying busy putting bad guys away
http://www.pjstar.com/news/x13833315...-pleads-guilty
http://www.pjstar.com/news/x13833314...hild-porn-case


and Steve Kuberski was voted onto the list of the ALL TIME Top 50 Players in Boston Celtics History
http://www.celticslife.com/2013/08/h...layers-in.html
(David Thirdkill shoulda made the list, too )

Zach Andrews just signed a sweet new deal to play top pro ball overseas - D-League play is great but the pay in the D-League is just not that tempting...
Zach signed with Osaka Evessa but has an opt out clause if he gets an NBA offer...
Zach once played in Japan - so now he's set to return...

a little followup on a couple of our past assistant coaches..

Ritchie McKay (assistant under Molinari) is now an assistant at Virginia -
he's currently taking a bunch of athletes to play in Jamaica for Athletes in Action, and also went to Prague over the summer with the U19 men's team..
http://www.virginiasports.com/sports...080713aag.html
http://www.newsadvance.com/sports/li...a4bcf6878.html

Duane Broussard now finds himself as an assistant at UCLA - not a bad gig although some at UCLA didn't want him there

after a good summer playing in pro-am leagues, but not getting enough NBA interest - Osiris Eldridge is going to decline D-League offers & head back to Turkey to play pro ball this coming season..
There's even one report that he signed for $110,000


btw- in the Championship game of the Pro-Am league - note who else played akey part...
first was BU's Tony Bennett and ex-Zach Andrews' teammate Bobby Simmons, - but ICC's Billy Baptist was the leading scorer with 37 points!!
http://www.highschoolcubenews.com/ne...le/show/276394

BTW - Baptist also played at UIC & Quincy as well as a few gigs in Europe
