From Tuesday through Friday, each time a former Wildcat hits the court, we will recap how they did and include a few highlights (if available). On Tuesdays, we’ll also recap what happened over the weekend, so you don’t miss the action. This will also serve as a discussion board. We will try to keep it updated as soon as the games are over, so check back often!

There were three NBA Wildcats in action on Wednesday night. Kyle Lowry (Toronto Raptors), Dante Cunningham (San Antonio Spurs), and Jalen Brunson (Dallas Mavericks) were active for the NBA slate of games. Donte DiVincenzo has returned to the G-League.


Kyle Lowry

It wasn’t the most efficient scoring night for Lowry, who had 10 points off of 3-of-10 shooting, but he did have a solid all-around game. However, he contributed in other areas. He had six boards, seven assists (just one turnover), one steal, and a block to go with his scoring. Unfortunately for him and the Raptors, they lost to the Boston Celtics, 117-108.

Jalen Brunson

Brunson got another healthy serving of minutes off the bench, in the Mavericks’ 105-101 loss to the San Antonio Spurs. Through 20 minutes of action, he finished with six points on 3-of-6 shooting. He also had one rebound and three assists.

Dante Cunningham

Cunningham was active for the game against Jalen Brunson and the Mavericks, but didn’t receive any playing time in San Antonio’s 105-101 win.

Up Next: @ Minnesota on Friday, Jan. 18, at 8 p.m. ET (ESPN)

Donte DiVincenzo

After sitting out the last few games with an injury, it was announced early Wednesday that DiVincenzo will be returning to the G-League to play for the Wisconsin Herd. We will monitor his progress and provide any updates on a return to the NBA.
