Cashmere Wright had a great career during his time at Cincinnati. It was only a matter of time before he signed a pro contract after his playing days were over. On Saturday, he put this message out into the world on Instagram: We found out where yesterday. Cashmere Wright is going to the Netherlands to play for the GasTerra Flames. They play in Groningen. In my hours of research, I've seen that that it does not get very warm in Groningen so Cashmere should bring a jacket. The team put out the following on their website: Cashmere Wright speelde als point guard voor de Cincinnati Bearcats in de sterke Big East competitie van de NCAA. Hij starte in zijn vier jarige college carrière in bijna alle wedstrijden voor de Bearcats. Wright was tijdens zijn college periode recordhouder voor zijn college in steals: 198. Daarnaast was hij de enige speler van Cincinnati ooit die meer dan 1300 punten maakte, 475 assists gaf en meer dan 175 steals pakte. In zijn senior season starte Cashmere in 33 wedstrijden (Gemiddeld 29,6 minuten). Cashmere behoorde in vijf categoriën tot de statistieken leiders in de Big East: 3PT made (5e met 2.21 per wedstrijd), steals (9e met 1.58 per wedstrijd), assist-turnover ratio (9e met 1.77-op-1), assists (15e met 3.21 per wedstrijd) en punten (24e met 12,7 punten per wedstrijd). Hij leidde UC in vrije worp percentage met 80,2 % (65 uit 81), haalde dubbele cijfers in punten in 23 wedstrijden en leidde UC in assists in 18 wedstrijden.   I know we all understand what that means since we all speak Dutch, but in case you didn't, I translated it. Cashmere Wright played as a point guard for the Cincinnati Bearcats in the strong competition of the NCAA Big East. He started in his four-year college career in almost all games for the Bearcats.

He led UC in free throw percentage with 80.2% (65 of 81) achieved double figures in points in 23 games and led UC in assists in 18 games. Congratulations to Cashmere. Have fun in the Netherlands. In closing, here is my favorite Cashmere Wright picture. The guy in the crowd is always the best.
