Hamilton Named to Lute Olson Mid-Season Watch List
Jan. 8, 2016
RUSTON -- Louisiana Tech guard Alex Hamilton is one of 35 players who have been named to the Lute Olson Award Mid-Season Watch List, announced by CollegeInsider.com.
Fifteen games into the season, the senior is leading the Bulldogs in points (17.8), assists (6.0) and steals (2.1) and is second in rebounding (5.9).
The Chipley, Florida native is one of only three players on the country (Kris Dunn of Providence and Ben Simmons of LSU) to currently be averaging at least 17 points, five rebounds, five assists and two steals per game.
Hamilton has been on a tear over the last eight games, scoring at least 14 points in all eight games while shooting 53 percent from the field.
At this point in his career, he is only the second Bulldog in program history to rank in the top 15 in career points and the top 10 in career assists and steals (Gerrod Henderson, 1998-2002).
The Lute Olson Award is presented annually to the nation's top Division I player who has played at least two seasons. Freshmen are not eligible for award.
