NCAA Basketball: Pittsburgh at West Virginia Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports

Former Pitt shooting guard Jared Wilson-Frame announced on Friday afternoon that he had signed with Limburg United of the Pro Basketball League in Belgium. Wilson-Frame played his last game with the Panthers on March 13, tying a program record with eight three-pointers in a 73-59 loss to Syracuse in the ACC tournament. This is the first contract of his professional career.

”If you know, you know,” Wilson-Frame said in a message posted on Twitter. “I would like to announce that I have signed my first professional contract with [Limburg United] out of Belgium and will be playing in the [Pro Basketball League]. I’m honored, humble and more excited than ever to get this journey started. All praises to the most high.”

Wilson-Frame was a key contributor for Pitt in the 2018-19 season, as he was the team’s most dangerous shooter, converting on 39.5 percent of his 248 shots from beyond the arc. In addition, he ranked second on the team in points and rebounds, with 12.7 and 5.0 per game, respectively. He also led the team in scoring in his junior year, putting up 13.0 points per game despite less reliable shooting.

This offseason, Wilson-Frame took part in the 3X3U National Championship tournament at the Mall of America in Minneapolis, representing the ACC alongside Anthony Lawrence of Miami, Marcquise Reed of Clemson and Elijah Thomas of Clemson. He led the team with 6.0 points and 1.5 assists per game in addition to shooting 63.6 percent from the field and 55.6 percent from distance.

In heading to Europe, Wilson-Frame joins recent Pitt alums Jamel Artis, James Robinson and Michael Young in making the hop across the pond. Artis and Young are both currently under contract with teams in the LNB Pro A in neighboring France, with Artis on Levallois Metropolitans and Young on Cholet Basket. Robinson is currently with Medi Bayreuth of Germany’s Basketball Bundesliga.
