After a rough couple weeks for NU basketball in terms of the recruiting snafu, the program has some good news to report. NU senior to be Paul Velander’s hard work has paid off.
After three years of being on the team as a walk-on, Velander will go on scholarship his senior season. Velander averaged 4.0 points a game last season and shot 37.1 percent from 3-point range. The 6-foot-2 guard from Blacksburg, Va., has played in 59 games with one start, and scored a career-high 20 points in 2007 against Oklahoma State.
