    Chicago, Ill. - Former UIC men's basketball standout Cedrick Banks has signed to play professionally for Besancon in the French B League it was announced today. Banks is the second UIC player from the 2004-05 squad to head overseas as Armond Williams will play professionally this season in Austria for the Feldkirch Eurotech Baskets.

    Banks, the Flames' all-time leading scorer and four-time All-Horizon League performer, has been busy since concluding his playing career at UIC. This past summer, he earned All-Rookie Team honors for the Nebraska Cranes of the United States Basketball League after averaging a team-best 17.1 points per game.

    The 6-foot-2 guard joins a Besancon squad that posted a 19-13 record last season.

    Williams, who led UIC in rebounding in each of the last three seasons while ranking second on the team in scoring in each of those campaigns, is headed for the Austrian A Leauge to compete for the Feldkirch Eurotech Baskets.
