The Summer League is in full swing and there are a bunch of former Big Ten players in action.  Though this is not an NBA site, many of these former Big Ten players are fighting for a roster position in the Summer League.  Success in the pros is highly related to a program's success, which makes the Summer League highly relevant for many of the programs in the Big Ten.  Here are some of the highlights from the day.

We detailed the full Summer League rosters and now we are going to be following those players during their games this summer.  Here are the highlights so far:

With that, let's take a look at how the Big Ten performed on this day of the Summer League.

Day Twelve Thoughts

First, here is my intro I am putting in each of these posts:

"Please insert a "grain of salt" warning with everyone of my statements regarding the Summer League.  The competition is much different than your typical NBA regular or postseason game.  Frankly, you just aren't going to run into your LeBron or Durant type of players in the Summer League.  This means that there are some weaknesses in players that just don't get exposed in these type of scenarios."

Essentially, it's fine to watch the Summer League and keep tabs, but if I say a guy is doing very well, don't just assume he's going to be NBA Rookie of the Year next year.  Everything is in the context of the Summer League.

The big news for Day 12 is that this is the beginning of the end so to speak.  Sure, the Orlando Summer League already ended, but the Las Vegas Summer League has been going strong since.  On Wednesday, the Vegas Bracket started and teams began being eliminated.  A large group of Big Ten players ended their Summer Leagues on Wednesday as their teams were eliminated.  At the end of the day, Dallas, Denver, Golden State,both LA teams, Milwaukee, Phoenix, and Toronto were eliminated.  In total, 11 Big Ten players were eliminated.

Aside from that, the two Hoosiers/Hornets had big days once again.  Both guys are showing they deserved their Draft hype.  Charlotte could be getting something good out of those two.  Gary Harris also had a big day for Denver.  The Nuggets were eliminated, but you have to think they're feeling good about Harris and the direction of their franchise.  Adreian Payne, John Shurna, and Deshaun Thomas also had solid days.
