Former Indiana basketball guard Jalen Hood-Schifino had his final California Classic Summer League game on Wednesday.

Hood-Schifino finished with 20 points on 8-of-17 shooting, three rebounds and four assists. His shot making ability was on much better display Wednesday. He showed a good ability to create off of ball screens and showed off his ability to create separation on his jumper.

Hood-Schifino had 15 points, five rebounds and four assists in game one. He was just 6-of-19 from the floor, however.

Hood-Schifino was the 17th overall selection in the NBA Draft last month.

“It’s honestly really crazy and kind of hard to say how I feel because growing up I was a big Kobe fan. I was always watching his videos, watching the Lakers,” Hood-Schifino said post-selection. “For me to get drafted by the Lakers is kind of surreal and kind of crazy.”

Jalen Hood-Schifino and the Lakers take the court again on July 7 in the Vegas Summer League against the Golden State Warriors at 11 pm ET on ESPN2.
