Edwin Ubiles appears in NBA game

Edwin Ubiles was part of a lot of Siena College history, when he suited up for the Saints.

On Wednesday, he made some more, when he became the first former Saints player to appear in an NBA game.

Ubiles signed a 10-day contract with the Washington Wizards on Sunday and finished Wednesday's victory over New Jersey, with four points on 1-for-4 shooting, while also grabbing four rebounds.

Ubiles is third on the all-time Siena scoring list (1,939) and was a part of three Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference championship teams and two victories in the NCAA tournament.

Ubiles was called up from the D-League where he was averaging 20.4 points per game for the Dakota Wizards (Bismarck, N.D.), and was selected to participate in the league’s All-Star game (Feb. 25). He scored 41 points in a game vs. Iowa Feb. 27.
