Last winter, Mike Edwards finished his four-year career as Caltech’s career-leading scorer with 1,581 points.
Now he has gone pro.
Edwards, 23, signed a contract with a team known as the Pee Dee Vipers of the Premier Basketball League, based out of Florence, S.C.
He played his first game on Saturday against the West Virginia Angels, coming off the bench to score four points and make two blocks.
The Vipers won the game 123-69.
“It’s all kind of led up to this and now it’s kind of my turn to show what I’ve got and keep improving and to make an impact and learn a lot and have fun too,” said Edwards.
