Former Arizona forward Ryan Luther had 11 points and four rebounds in Herd That’s 93-76 quarterfinal loss today to Overseas Elite in The Basketball Tournament at Columbus, Ohio.
The loss means all three former Arizona players in the event — Luther, Nick Johnson (The Money Team) and Mark Lyons (Heartfire) — were eliminated and will not take home a winning share of the $1 million tournament.
Luther, a graduate transfer from Pitt who played for Arizona in the 2018-19 season, played on a team comprised of mostly Marshall alums. He averaged 9 points and 4.7 rebounds in Herd That’s three games.
After playing a year in the Latvia-Estonia pro league, Luther will play in Turkey next season with Darussafaka.
