Ben Hansbrough to play for Bayern

One long night of uncertainty last week was enough for former Notre Dame guard and 2011 Big East player of the year Ben Hansbrough.

Hansbrough, who was not selected Thursday in the NBA draft, received offers from “several” teams to join them when - maybe if - training camp begins this fall. Rather than wait out the NBA lockout, which will start Friday and could cut deep into the regular season, Hansbrough knew it was time to make a decision about his basketball future, and even take it in a different direction.

Hansbrough’s professional career will commence in Germany, where he will play for FC Bayern Muenchen, a Bundesliga 1 (high level) team in Munich. Bayern, which featured former Georgetown guard Jonathan Wallace, was 17-13 last year in a 30-game season that stretched from late September to late April.

Hansbrough, who led the Irish (27-7) in scoring (18.4 ppg.) and assists (4.3) last winter, leaves for Europe in mid-August.
