After leading the College to its best finish in years and its second ever NIT appearance, former Tribe forward Danny Sumner ’10 has signed a contract to play professional basketball for Karhu Kauhajoki in Finland’s top division, the Korisliiga.
Sumner signed with Karhu Kauhajoki after generating interest from several other professional leagues. Sumner worked out for the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks over the summer, and also visited with professional teams in Germany, Belgium and Israel before signing in Finland.
Sumner was a three year starter for the Tribe, and was a vital cog in the College’s successful runs in the 2008 and 2010 CAA Tournaments.
Sumner will begin training camp this week, and hopes to appear in his first regular season game Sept. 6.
