Pittsburgh Native, Colgate Guard Nelly Cummings Enters Transfer Portal



On Monday, one of the best players from Western Pennsylvania in recent memory, Nelly Cummings, hit the transfer portal after playing one season for Bowling Green and three seasons for Colgate.

This season for Colgate, the 6-foot point guard averaged 14.7 points and 3.4 assists per game, starting all 32 contests for the Raiders. He has scored over 1,000 points in his collegiate career, and is a lifetime 36% three-point shooter. In Colgate’s recent NCAA Tournament First Round game against Wisconsin, Cummings scored 20 points, dished out six assists, and grabbed six rebounds in the loss. This season, he grabbed a career-high 97 rebounds and also set career highs in assists, steals, and three pointers made.

Earlier in the season, Cummings returned to his hometown of Pittsburgh to take on Pitt at the Petersen Events Center. In that game, which Pitt won by three, Cummings hit 5 of his 14 field-goal attempts in a 17-point effort.

“I traveled around pretty much everywhere around Pittsburgh playing different types of teams, different types of players, and different AAU programs,” Cummings told Pittsburgh Sports Now in December. Playing for Lincoln Park was really good as well because we won a lot of games. My legacy there speaks for itself. The whole Pittsburgh area, basketball is not what it’s known for, but we have a lot of talented players.”
