Lowe signs pro contract in Israel

By Craig Meyer/DFP Staff

After spending last season playing in Greece, former Boston University men's basketball standout Corey Lowe will continue his professional career, signing a contract with Maccabi Ashdod of the Israeli League.

A four-year starter at guard for the Terriers from 2006-09, Lowe finished his BU career as the program's fourth all-time leading scorer with 1,815 points and the program's all-time leader with 313 3-pointers made.

A highly-touted recruit coming out of Newton North High School, Lowe was a three-time all-America East Conference performer, netting AE first team honors in 2009, and second team honors in 2008 and 2010.

Lowe becomes the former BU player to ink a professional contract overseas this summer, joining former teammate John Holland, who signed a contract in July with Chorale de Roanne of the French Pro A Division.
