:Villanovans Around the Globe (Part I)

In an effort to try and keep track of all Villanovans around the Globe, we tried to do some research to see where the non-NBA professionals from 'Nova are and how they're doing. It took a while to compare former Villanova rosters to the multiple leagues around Europe, but here is what has uncovered...

  • Rafal Bigus plays for Kotwica Kołobrzeg in Poland. Everything is in polish, so I have no idea how he is doing.
  • Michael Bradley can be found at BC Žalgiris, a Lithuanian powerhouse. He's averaging 8.5 pts in the Euroleague.
  • Gary Buchanan is playing in Bulgaria for NYKK.
  • Chuck Kornegay is now a Spanish citizen and plays for Palma Aqua Mágica in Mallorca.
  • Brian Lynch married tennis pro Kim Clijsters in July. He plays for Euphony Bree in Belguim (Clijsters' hometown).
  • Allan Ray is playing for Pallacanestro Virtus Roma in Italy's Serie A after signing a 2 year/$2m contract. The squad is in 2nd place and Ray is averaging 8.6pts, 2.7rebs, and 2.7asts.
  • Brooks Sales is a starter for Snaidero Cucine Udine in Italy's Lega A. He's averaging 10.8 points a game.
  • Andrew Sullivan was the MVP of the British League last year and was playing for DKV Joventut de Badalona in Spain.
  • Curtis Sumpter was playing in Germany for Köln 99ers in the fall, but decided to leave for some unknown reason.
