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!
After no Wildcats in action on Thursday night, we’ve got five to close out the work week: Ryan Arcidiacono (Chicago Bulls), Omari Spellman (Atlanta Hawks), Kyle Lowry (Toronto Raptors), Mikal Bridges (Phoenix Suns), and Josh Hart (Los Angeles Lakers).
Four overtimes! Arcidiacono and the Bulls pulled off a win against Spellman and the Hawks. If you stayed up, the Bulls won 168-161, holding off Trae Young heroics.
Arcidiacono played for 38 minutes, finishing with 10 points (3-of-5 shooting), six rebounds, and one assist.
