Former UAlbany Hoops Player Signs With Italian Pro Team
After graduating during the 2011-2012 men’s basketball season, then-UAlbany shooting guard Logan Aronhalt was aware he still had one year of eligibility remaining, giving him a choice about whether or not he wanted to use it. Aronhalt went on to use his final year of eligibility under Mark Turgeon at the University of Maryland, and now it looks like the move paid off.
On Monday afternoon, Aronhalt’s father tweeted the following picture, with Logan deciding to continue his basketball career overseas:

In his final year with the Great Danes back in the 2011-12 season, Aronhalt averaged 13.8 points and 4.3 rebounds per game, but was plagued by chronic knee pain, limiting him to a total of 26 minutes in Albany’s final seven games. Last year, while providing some much needed depth off the bench for the Terrapins, Aronhalt averaged six points per game while making a team-high 63 three-pointers.
According to the story written by The Washington Post, Casalpusterlengo competes in the third-highest level of Italian basketball and is the same team current Denver Nuggets player Danilo Gallinari got his pro career started with almost a decade ago.
