Forward Joe Trapani, who averaged 14.8 points and 7.0 rebounds as a senior at Boston College this past season, traveled to Italy this week to sign with the Italian Serie A club Fastweb Casale Monferrato. Trapani tweeted Monday: Leaving for Italy tomorrow night to finish this deal.
Fastweb Casale is new to Serie A this year after moving up from Italy’s second division.
Trapani, a native of Madison, Conn., started his collegiate career at Vermont before transferring to BC after his freshman season. He totaled 1,383 points for the Eagles after tallying 296 in his lone season with the Catamounts.
