Ruoff Signs Pro Contract

After a pre-draft workout with the Washington Wizards on June 22, WVU alum Alex Ruoff has signed a contract with the NBA team.

Ruoff, who finished as West Virginia's career three-point field goal leader, made Washington one of his stops during pre-draft workouts. Although the heady shooting guard was not selected in the two-round NBA Draft, he did impress several general managers with his shooting ability.

Ruoff will play for the Wizards' summer league team, with practices beginning on July 10. Washington's first game will be on July 14. The NBA summer league is played at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nev. Washington is scheduled to play five games in the event.

At West Virginia, Ruoff averaged 11.2 points for his career, including 15.7 points as a senior. He tallied 410 assists and 189 steals during his four-year career. He started every game in which he played over his final three seasons.
