Cougars Overseas

The Cougars are hard at work getting ready for the 2011-12 season. Practice starts in 17 days. The Cougar Tipoff is 28 days away. In the meantime, several former Cougars are starting or getting ready to start their professional seasons overseas. The previous blog post gave you a look at what Chris Miles and Logan Magnusson are up to in Germany. Here we'll give you a look at what a few other guys are up to.

Lee Cummard signed with Kyoto Hannaryz of the BJ League in Japan. Kyoto plays in the league's Western Conference. Lee played the previous two seasons in France. Check out his profile on the team's website. There are a few other familiar faces on the roster. Former Weber State Wildcats Jermaine Boyette and Lance Allred will also suit up for Kyoto this season.

Based on what I could find on Google and Eurobasket, it looks like Keena Young has signed to play for YMCA Lahti in Finland. Young played in Israel last season and averaged 17.4 points and 6.1 rebounds for Elitzur Ramla.

Jonathan Tavernari is on the roster for Pallacanestro Biella in Italy. He'll be making his professional debut this season.

Trent Whiting continues to tear it up in Italy. Last season he led the Lega Due in scoring at 22.4 points per game playing for Aget Imola. He'll be suiting up for Aget again this season. Whiting scores 43 in the video below while hitting 10-of-12 from three. Gotta love the call at 1:34.
