It certainly was an exciting college basketball season for Syracuse University, right up to the playoffs. Now, we’ve learned that three SU players are headed to the NBA.
Here are the details from our sister station, WIBX:
“Syracuse University guard Dion Waiters didn’t have to wait long for his name to be called in last night’s NBA Draft. He was taken with the fourth overall pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Waiters was a sophomore at Syracuse last season. He averaged 12.6 points for the Orange and was also recognized with the Big East’s “Sixth Man of the Year” award.
