WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Washington Wizards' 2018 roster features a familiar name, as former University of Hartford men's basketball guard Jalen Ross has joined the team in Las Vegas. The Wizards will be evaluating their Summer League players for potential spots on their upcoming G-League Team, the Capital City Go-Go, which begins action this fall. After transferring to Hartford from Eastern Michigan in 2014, Ross inked his name throughout the Hawks' record books in two seasons from 2015-17. He finished his career ranked No. 6 in scoring with 14.7 points per game, in addition to finishing No. 4 in three-point field goal percentage (.365), No. 5 in free-throw percentage (.807) and No. 10 in free throws made (277). An America East All-Conference Third Team selection as a senior in 2016-17, Ross, a Greenbelt, Md., native, averaged a league-best 19.9 points per game for a total of 576 points, which marked the fifth-highest total in Hartford history. That season, he made 161 free throws, fifth-most in a season in program history, and drained the 10th-most three-pointers in a season with 69. The Wizards were eliminated from the 2018 Summer League Tournament in an 89-74 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday afternoon. Although they have been eliminated with a 1-3 record, Washington will play a consolation game against the Mavericks on Friday at 6 p.m.
