Hall and USA Register a Pair of Wins in Fiba AmeriCup Qualifiers
INDIANAPOLIS, IN - December 1, 2020 - Tyler Hall of the Westchester Knicks, the official NBA G League affiliate of the New York Knicks, helped USA Basketball to a 2-0 record in the November 2020 FIBA AmeriCup Qualifying games. In a reserve role, Hall gifted the squad 15 points in 39 minutes spanned across the two contests.
In a 99-59 rout of the Bahamas on November 29, Hall had a 12-point display all reigning from behind the arc (4-for-6). Two helpers shy of a team-high, Hall dished four assists to go along with two rebounds in 25 minutes. USA shot 51.4-percent from the field and 41.4-percent from distance. Bahamas only sank 30.2-percent of its shots with a 24-percent clip from deep. Former Westchester Knicks, John Jenkins and Travis Trice, loaned 12 and 10 points, respectively.
The following day in a 94-78 triumph over Mexico, Hall recorded a triple and hauled a board on USA's behalf. Jenkins added 16 points in 26 minutes.
