Boston University Alumni Updates

I think we should have a general thread for the comings and goings of our former players in the pros.



Sadly, we're starting this thread on a down note: Darryl Partin was released by his NBDL club, the Fort Wayne Mad Ants: http://www.wane.com/dpp/sports/local...release-partin

Hopefully, one of the next responses will be about Partin signing somewhere nicer than Fort Wayne and with a team name better than "Mad Ants".

Bummer for DP!

It's not for everyone, but I'd hope he considers signing abroad - a great way to experience new culture!

Re: Boston University Alumni Updates

To any BU fans in NYC, a couple of all-time greats are playing in the Pro City summer league: Rashad Bell for Team Franchise and John Holland for Team Dyckman.

Rosters consist primarily of college/ex-college players, although NBA players regularly stop by (Durant, Kyrie, Hibbert, to name a few).

Games are Tuesdays and Thursdays at Baruch College (24th and Lexington).

Re: Boston University Alumni Updates

Former players, Marshall Crane and Billy Collins, are doing what they can to give back to their community and promote basketball in New Hampshire.

In honor of their late high school basketball coach, the two have helped create a foundation to improve some of the basketball parks and facilities in the local school districts. Former and current UNH head coaches, Phil Rowe and Bill Herrion, have also provided donations.

I remember following along when John played for the Heat and Nuggets(?) last summer. It's nice to see how he does against solid competition. I'm sure his positive experience so far in Spain will help him this time around

Re: Boston University Alumni Updates

Holland played pretty well in his third summer league game.

After playing only a couple of minutes in their previous game, JH started for the T-wolves and put up a decent stat line: 19 mins, 12 pts, 5 rebs, 3 asts, and a steal.

He also had a couple of nice dunks.

Re: Boston University Alumni Updates

I've been following along too. Surprised he got the start in Game 2 but that was great - and he played well.

I'm a little ignorant about how this could affect his U.S.-based playing fortunes. My guess is, "not a lot." Still fun though

Re: Boston University Alumni Updates

Article in the DFP about Holland's pro basketball career so far.

http://dailyfreepress.com/2013/08/19...sional-career/

In the immediate, he'll play for the PR national team later this month, but I'm not sure where he will play during the season. I still think he has what it takes for at least a 10-day NBA look. He's a versatile, perimeter defender and efficient scorer. We'll see.

Another one for the mixtape. Holland dunks on Luis Scola. En la cara!

Re: Boston University Alumni Updates

Holland and the PR national team lost to Mexico in the FIBA Americas championship game tonight. Despite the setback, the PR team still qualified for the 2014 FIBA World Cup in Spain. NBA TV will show a replay of the game tomorrow night (Thursday).

Holland appears set to be a mainstay on the national team. He plays a lot of minutes and contributes on the scoreboard and highlight reel.


Good job, JH.
