WASHINGTON, D.C. - Georgetown University junior men's basketball player DaJuan Summers (Baltimore, Md./McDonogh) was selected by the Detroit Pistons in the second round of the National Basketball Association (NBA) Draft on Thursday night in New York City.

A 6-8, 243-pound forward, Summers was the fifth pick of the round and the 35th pick overall.

In addition to averaging 11.2 points per game, his three-year career saw him average 4.4 rebounds. He leaves Georgetown ranked seventh all-time in three-point field goals made with 145.

He was third on the team in rebounding with 4.1 boards per game, hit a team-high 52 three-point field goals and was fourth on the team in field goal percentage, connecting on 47.4 percent of his shots from the field.

Summers was an All-BIG EAST Rookie selection during the 2006-07 season, helping the Hoyas to a 30-7 overall record, the NCAA Final Four and to the BIG EAST Conference Regular Season and Tournament titles, respectively. He started 34 of 37 games and finished fourth on the team with 9.2 points per game, grabbed 3.7 rebounds per game and was second on the team with 42 three-pointers.
