A Wildwood Catholic High School graduate is about to travel overseas to play pro basketball.
Jordan Robertson, a 2014 graduate of Wildwood Catholic, has signed a contract to play for BC Titebi, which competes in the first professional division in the Eastern European country of Georgia.
The news was first reported by eurobasket.com.
Robertson heads to Europe after leading the Syracuse Stallions to a championship series appearance in The Basketball League, a low-level American professional league, earlier this summer. Robertson, a 6-3 guard, averaged 19.1 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists over 29 games for Syracuse.
He also previously played in the TBL for Albany.
Robertson entered the pro ranks after a four-year playing career at Division I Colgate. He averaged 5.3 points per game as a senior in 2017-18 while playing in 32 of a possible 33 games.
BC Titebi, based in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi, finished 8-12 and placed eighth out of 11 teams in the Georgian Superleague last winter. The team plays its home games in a 4,000-seat arena.
BC Titebi is set to begin the regular season this fall.
Robertson averaged 18.7 points and 7.1 rebounds per game as a senior at Wildwood Catholic in 2013-14. He made one of the most memorable shots in Crusader boys basketball history when his right-wing three-pointer with less than 20 seconds to go gave Wildwood Catholic the lead for good in a Cape-Atlantic League playoff semifinal upset victory over Holy Spirit. He also threw down a dunk just ahead of the buzzer to seal the win. Robertson then scored 25 points on 10-of-18 shooting in a surprising 61-33 win over Atlantic City in the title game to give Wildwood Catholic its first CAL playoff tournament title.
