RUSTON – Three former Louisiana Tech men’s basketball players recently wrapped up action during the NBA Summer League.

Jaron Johnson, Michale Kyser and reigning Conference USA Player of the Year Alex Hamilton each took part in the offseason competition for their respective teams.

Hamilton competed for the Los Angeles Clippers in the Orlando Summer League.
