Lucas Hausman '16 To Play on D3 Entrant For The Basketball Tournament

BRUNSWICK, Maine – Bowdoin men's basketball alumnus Lucas Hausman '16 will compete on the "We Are D3" team in the 2019 edition of The Basketball Tournament (TBT) beginning this Friday evening.

Hausman's squad will battle "Boeheim's Army" – a collection of Syracuse University Basketball alumni – in the opening round of the $2 Million winner-take-all Tournament on Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. at SRC Arena in Syracuse, N.Y. The game can be viewed live on ESPN2.

One of the most accomplished men's basketball players in Bowdoin history, Hausman was the 2015 NESCAC Player of the Year and a Third Team NABC All-American. As a senior, he established a new single-season Bowdoin and NESCAC record for scoring average (25.3/game). A native of Westport, Conn., he majored in Economics and earned First Team Academic All-America recognition for his work in the classroom. After graduation, Hausman has continued his basketball career professionally overseas, playing two years with CB Marbella in Spain before signing with Maccabi Haifa in Israel last fall. In his first game with the team in October, he scored 10 points with three assists and three rebounds in an NBA preseason exhibition game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

The "We Are D3" team is a collection of former Division III basketball players, including four players from the NESCAC (Malcolm and Marcus Delpeche from Bates and Johnny McCarthy of Amherst along with Hausman). The Basketball Tournament is an open-application, single-elimination tournament played each summer in the United States, currently featuring 64 teams and offering $2 million in winner-take-all prize money.
