Ian Hummer Has Basketball In His Blood

From his teenaged teammates, Ian Hummer probably endures his share of goodnatured teasing about sharing a name with a popular vehicle. The kid also has pedigree. The Gonzaga High School big is the son of former Washington-Lee H.S. and Princeton star Ed Hummer. Ed’s brother John Hummer also played at Princeton. Ed was a Bill Bradley Final Four teammate in ’65- John ran with the expansion Buffalo Braves. Another charter Brave from the Metro area was Harold Fox of Northwestern High.

Ian will graduate in 2009.
