Senior guard Dontay Caruthers picks up his dribble. Caruthers is a former MAC defensive player of the year and will be critical to the Bulls’ defensive success this year.

Former UB men’s basketball player Dontay Caruthers signed with the Grand Rapids Drive, the G-League affiliate of the Detroit Pistons, on Sunday.

Caruthers became the second former Bull to sign a professional contract in the last few weeks, after C.J. Massinburg signed with the Long Island Nets on Oct. 15. 

He was named to the 2019 Mid-American Conference All-Defensive Team and is a two-time recipient of the Mid-American Conference Defensive Player of the Year, winning the award in 2017 and 2019. Caruthers became the third player in league history to win the award twice.

Caruthers averaged 8.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game during the 2018-19 season. He also scored 20 or more points four times, including a 28-point performance against Bowling Green.

Training camp started on Monday, with the season starting on Nov. 8.
