Lehigh fans watched as C.J. McCollum was taken in the draft lottery, McCollum has arrived in Portland to meet the Trailblazers management and some of his teammates. He spent some time today with the media... a part of the conversation for McCollum with the media today centered around his jersey.  McCollum will wear the same number 3 jersey in Portland that he wore throughout his Lehigh career.  So, for all of you that may have one of those lehigh jerseys, you can keep wearing yours to support McCollum who said today he was happy the number was available and that he didn't have to try and purchase it from a teammate.

One of McCollum's teammates is also going to play professionally, Gabe Knutson announced via twitter Monday night that he has signed to play professionally in Bulgaria for the upcoming season.
