Two Archdiocese of Philadelphia school grads were among the 58 players selected in the 2023 NBA Draft held June 22 at the Barclays Center.
Seth Lundy, a 2018 Roman alum, was drafted by the Atlanta Hawks with the 46th overall pick, while the Indiana Pacers selected 2019 Bonner & Prendie grad Isaiah Wong with the 55th pick.
Lundy averaged 14.2 points and 6.3 rebounds while knocking down 92 field goals from beyond the arc as PSU reached the finals of the Big Ten Tournament as well as the 2nd Round of the NCAA Tourney in 2023. He scored a game-high 25 points, including the 1,000th of his career, in the Nittany Lions’ 85-66 win over Indiana on Jan. 11.
Wong garnered 2023 ACC Player of the Year and NABC third-team All-America distinction as he led Miami (FL) to the Final Four for the first time in program history. He averaged 16.2 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 2022-23 and ended his stellar career fourth on the program’s career scoring list.
The last AOP grad to be selected in the NBA Draft was Tony Carr, a 2016 graduate of Roman who was taken by the New Orleans Pelicans with the 51st overall selection in the 2018 NBA Draft.
