Herndon Signs with Spanish Basketball League

BoomerHerndon.JPGFormer Belmont men’s basketball player Boomer Herndon, a 2007 graduate in Communication Studies, recently signed with C.B. Grupo Promobys Tijola of the Spanish Basketball League, which is also the league home of another former Bruin, Adam Sonn, now with C.B. Ourense. Herndon ranks second on Belmont’s all-time list for field goal percentage shooting (59.2), blocked shots (102) and third in rebounding average (6.3 per game). Moreover, the imposing center overcame a health scare in the summer of 2006 – the discovery of a benign mass in his chest – to rank third in the Atlantic Sun in field goal percentage (.610). The Nashville, Tenn. native twice earned All-Atlantic Sun Second Team honors and was named to the Saint Mary’s (CA) All-Tournament Team as a senior.
