Loyola’s Doyle Earns NBA Summer League Invite

CHICAGO (June 23, 2017) – Former Loyola University Chicago men’s basketball star Milton Doyle (Chicago, Ill./Marshall/Kansas) has agreed to a NBA Summer League deal with the Brooklyn Nets. Brooklyn is scheduled to participate in the Las Vegas Summer League, July 7-17. Doyle is the first Rambler to be invited to the NBA Summer League since Blake Schilb in 2012.

 

During his illustrious four-year career at Loyola, Doyle racked up 1,606 points and 459 assists, figures that rank eighth and fifth in school history, respectively. A First Team All-Missouri Valley Conference and First Team National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) All-District selection in 2016-17, Doyle finished his career just six rebounds shy of becoming only the second player in program history, and first since Schilb, to accumulate 1,500 points, 400 assists and 500 rebounds.

 

As a senior, the do-everything Doyle averaged 15.2 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.7 steals per game and was the only player to rank in the top five in the Missouri Valley Conference in scoring, assists and steals. He poured in a career-best 35 points and hauled in 10 rebounds in a victory at Bradley on January 7, 2017. The 6-foot-4 guard scored in double figures in 31 of the Ramblers’ 32 games in 2016-17 and helped Loyola to an 18-win season and the program’s first Associated Press Top 25 Poll votes since 1985.

 

Brooklyn is scheduled to open NBA Summer League play in Vegas on July 7 versus the Atlanta Hawks at 7 p.m. Central. That game will be televised live on NBA TV.
