Two former MSU basketball players were drafted in the first round of the NBA G-League draft. On Saturday, Oct. 26, Tyler Hall and Keljin Blevins were drafted fourth and 15th, respectively.
Both Hall and Blevins graduated last year and started on the MSU 2018-19 basketball team.
Hall was selected by the Westchester Knicks, a feeder team for the New York Knicks. During his four years at MSU, Hall broke the all-time school and conference scoring record with 2,518 points over 126 games. Hall also sits ninth all-time in three-pointers made in Division I basketball.
Blevins transferred to Bozeman from Southern Mississippi after his sophomore season. In his two years at MSU, he started every game and averaged 10.7 points and 5.9 rebounds per game. After his senior season, he signed a training camp contract with the Portland Trailblazers. He competed in the NBA preseason, but ultimately couldn’t ink a permanent deal with the team. In his first game with his new squad, the Northern Arizona Suns, Blevins scored 10 points and pulled in 9 rebounds.
