Former Vanderbilt basketball star Shan Foster was picked No. 51 overall in the second round of the NBA Draft by the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday.
"I'm definitely excited," he told The City Paper on Thursday. "Dallas is a great place and they have a great team there. I look forward to the opportunity to go in, hopefully make the team and contribute."
Foster departed VU this spring as the school's all-time leading scorer and was also named 2008 Southeastern Conference Player of the Year.
