Thursday closed out the regular Summer League play. On Friday, there will be consolation games for the bottom 16 teams. Consolation games will continue on Saturday when the 8 teams with the next best records play. Quarterfinal tournament games also begin on Saturday for the 8 teams with the best records during league play.
Reid Travis got another chance to show the Hawks what he can offer. Again, getting limited minutes (13), Travis made the best of it. He only scored 2 points, but he pulled down 6 rebounds, dished 2 assists, and had 2 blocks. Hopefully, Reid will get to play in the Hawks’ consolation game.
Hamidou Diallo obviously has been reading my recaps since he limited his 3-point attempts and improved his free throw shooting on Thursday. In 26 minutes, he scored 14 points, had 7 rebounds, 2 assists, and went 4-6 from the free-throw line.
Wenyen Gabriel also apparently saw the wisdom of reading these daily wrapups to get advice on his game. Gabriel went 50% from 3-point range (4-8) on Thursday and has finally raised his FT percentage to just over 50% for the summer. In his 26 minutes of play, he scored 18 points, grabbed 8 rebounds, and had 4 blocks.
Isaac Humphries was back in action getting 8 minutes of playing time once again. He only had 3 points and 1 rebound, but he did add an assist, a steal, and 2 blocks to round out his stat line.
The final game of the night was a battle of the undefeated as Boston took on Memphis. Aaron Harrison did not start tonight had a relatively quiet game. In his 13 minutes of play, he scored 4 points and had one lone rebound.
Though tomorrow’s schedule has not yet been released, rest assured we will be following all the Cats and will continue to bring you the latest stats from all Kentucky players as Summer League winds down.
