During the broadcast this last weekend, Hummer (Turkey) and Bray (Belgium) were mentioned.

They didn't mention Kareem Maddox, playing in Poland.

I guess Rocca finally retired, and I think Judson Wallace is no longer playing.

Anyone else?

Apparently Mason Rocca is still playing in Italy at age 39. Judson Wallace is playing in Puerto Rico.

19/04/2015 Mason Rocca retires at 37: The former Princeton forward has played 14 years in Italy. Mason Rocca will play his last game as professional basketball player today against Agrigento. The product of Princeton decided to retire after 14 years in Italy started and ended with the jersey of Jesi.

Can't find him on a current roster anywhere.

Wallace played a little in Puerto Rico last year, but I can't find him on a roster anywhere.

On LinkedIn, looks like Brendan Connolly is taking classes to go to med school. Hope he's not planning to go into pediatrics.

I kinda wish some of the current Princeton was in Europe.

I feel like Bray is a tad underappreciated by Ivy fans. He was overlooked during the Hummer years despite his critical role, and his astounding senior season (#1 efficiency player in DI despite heavy usage and responsibility for a lot of end-of-clock bailout plays) never really attracted that much attention.

Thanks for the link. Forgot about Clay Wilson.

I think Judson Wallace is in business school.

NYU Stern
Nice thing about Ivy Ball is that us fans get to know the players over four years and wish them nothing but the best in their pro careers and in life. Playing Ivy ball is special, Ive heard the same from players and the relationships they develop in Europe etc. Former Harvard star is working (and doing great) for one of my companies and i HATED him during his four years in Cambridge.

Ian Hummer heading to AC Monaco.

https://www.eurohoops.net/en/eurocup/721499/mon aco...

According to the EuroCup announcement:

AS Monaco added a fresh piece to its frontcourt with the signing of power forward Ian Hummer for the coming season. Hummer (2.01 meters, 27 years old) arrives from Russian club Avtodor Saratov, for which he posted 10.2 points on 58.6% two-point shooting and 4.4 rebounds in 25 VTB United League games last season. He enjoyed a storied college basketball career at Princeton University, where he was the Ivy League Player of the Year as a senior and finished second on the school’s all-time scoring list with 1,625 points behind only Hall of Famer and former EuroLeague champion Bill Bradley. Hummer has since played professionally for ratiopharm Ulm and BG Goettingen in Germany, Bisons Loimaa in Finland, TED Ankara Kolejliler in Turkey and Saratov in Russia. He follows Derek Needham as Monaco’s second new signing of the summer.

Ian is well-traveled. Got to say that Monaco sounds more appealing than some of his stops, but I've never been to any of those places.

I had not realized - or forgotten - that Bradley played pro Euro-ball during his Rhodes Scholarship.

I was in Ulm once, decades ago. Lovely city. Got a private tour of the JG Anschutz Factory from Dieter Anschutz himself.

How's that for some name dropping?
