    CU great Cory Higgins may have slipped through the NBA's talent nets, but he was grabbed up by the NBDL's Erie BayHawks in the first round of yesterday's NBDL draft. Selected with the 8th overall pick, the all-time CU leader in points and games played will start his professional career in the Knicks affiliate.

    I still think Cory has the talent to play a consistent back-bench role on an NBA team, but the road from the Developmental League is long and mostly anonymous. He does have one advantage over former running mate, and future Utah Jazz star, Alec Burks - the NBDL will actually be playing games this fall.

    Congrats to Cory, and good luck chasing you NBA dreams!

    Some other interesting names you might recognize from the DL's draft: former NBA role-player Jamaal Tinsley (went with the first overall pick), Gary Johnson from UT, Brady Morningstar from KU, Jake Anderson from ISU, Eric Devendorf from Syracuse, Byron Eaton from Oklahoma St, ****ing Bobby Howard from Montana St (single-handedly beat CU a few years back), and CU's very own James "Mookie" Wright, who was taken in the 6th round by the Idaho Stampede.

    Bringing up Mookie allows me to re-post this video:
