The Los Angeles Lakers captured the NBA summer league title on July 17 in a 110-98 win over the Portland Trailblazers.

The Lakers saw contributions from Sidwell star Josh Hart during their run to the championship. The former Quaker, who was selected by Los Angeles out of Villanova in the first round of the NBA draft in June, saw action in two of the team’s games. Hart scored 20 points and got eight rebounds in his appearances.
