The Boston Celtics have signed former Madison Memorial and Marquette star Vander Blue to a 10-day contract. Blue confirmed the signing on his Twitter, saying "God is amazing! I am speechless right now. All it took was patience." 

Last spring, Blue left Marquette before his senior season. He went undrafted in 2013.

In October, he was signed as a free agent by Philadelphia, before being released at the end of that month. He then played a stint in Israel. Most recently he played for Philadelphia's NBADL team, the Delaware 87ers.

Blue scored 35 points for the 87ers Monday night.
