Note: You don’t have to know what a passion bucket is to enjoy three Cornell players acting like teenagers in the middle of their first sex ed class.

When 6-foot-7 former Eden Prairie and Cornell scoring star Ryan Wittman went undrafted by the NBA on Thursday, it was the 15th straight year that the Ivy League went without having a player taken in the draft. The last Ivy League player taken in the NBA draft was Jerome Allen from Penn in the second round in 1995.
Look for Wittman, who is being represented by Mark Termini, and also represents Washington Wizards coach Flip Saunders, to play for the Boston Celtics’ summer league team in Orlando, Fla.
I don’t know too much about Wittman other than that he’s a stud shooter, smooth scorer, and likely too slow and unathletic to thrive in the NBA. He’s also probably a lot smarter than I am. And, hopefully, his passion bucket will always be filled to the brim.
