Lumpkin to play in Finland
BY MICHAEL PERRY
The Cincinnati Enquirer
Gary Lumpkin, a four-year starter at Xavier's point guard, has signed a one-year contract to play in Finland, his agent Anil Vaswani said Friday.
Lumpkin leaves Thursday and will compete for Kotkan Tyovaen Palloilijat in Kouvola, Finland, on the country's east coast.
I can start over again, Lumpkin said. I think it'll be good for me to get away for a while.
Vaswani said the contract has an out clause should Lumpkin received a better offer from another team, including in the United States, by Oct. 31.
