When Edgewood College men's basketball alumni Ben Wisniewski signed on with the Saigon Heat, he did so as a front office employee and a practice player. He knew he likely wouldn't get a chance to play in a game, unless one of the other two permitted American players on the roster sustained an injury.
Sometimes it pays to be in the right place at the right time.
Wisniewski made his professional basketball debut on Sunday in Singapore, replacing injured leading scorer Dior Lowhorn in the Heat's lineup. Wisniewski drilled his first shot attempt, a three-pointer, and went on to an 11-point night on 3-for-8 shooting in 31 minutes of game action.
