Today was a good day for former Saint Mary’s point guards at the NBA Summer League playoffs in Las Vegas.
Former West Coast Conference Player of the Year Mickey McConnell dished out 11 assists to go with 8 points in his 5th straight start as his Charlotte Hornets claimed a 104-75 victory over New Orleans.
Later in the afternoon, Stephen Holt’s second-half scoring outburst led the Atlanta Hawks to an 88-65 win over the Portland Trail Blazers. Holt also started and scored 15 points to go with five rebounds and two assists.
Both teams advanced to Saturday’s tournament quarterfinals.
