In the last day of games before the culminating tournament, four WCC players took part in the action. Here is how they fared:
Stephen Holt played the sixth man role for the Atlanta Hawks, who were defeated by a healthy margin at the hands of the Portland Trailblazers. While playing roughly 24 minutes in a 91-76 loss, Holt finished with 10 points, one rebounds, two assists and two steals. Holt shot three of six from the field (one of two from three) and did not commit a single turnover.
The Hawks finished the first portion of the summer league 0-3.
Former Gonzaga teammates Elias Harris and David Stockton met up with former BYU Cougar Brandon Davies when the Phoenix Suns and the Philadelphia 76ers played in each team’s third and final summer league game.
Harris and Davies started for their respective teams, with the former Gonzaga forward starting at small forward and the former BYU forward getting the start at center. Harris struggled mightily today, scoring only four points on one of eight shooting from the field. He also had three rebounds and an assist.
While playing center, Davies did not fare much better. The BYU graduate scored five points on one of four shooting, and struggled to get things going on the offensive end. However, he did chip in five rebounds, three assists and a steal in the 97-88 loss to Harris’ suns.
David Stockton logged his first minutes for the Phoenix Suns today, scoring two points and dishing out an assist in roughly five minutes of action.
The summer league tournament bracket has not been finalized yet. When it is, this post will be updated with the tip-times for former WCC players.
