In January 2016, LMULIONSROAR.com provided a report on former LMU Lions playing professionally overseas. If you missed that article, here is a link.
It’s time we provided fans with an update. We’ve included players that transferred to different schools after leaving LMU because the mantra still stands, “once a Lion, always a Lion.” This list only includes those who played during the 2019/20 season, and those whose season was disrupted by COVID-19 domestically and internationally. If we missed anyone, please let us know and we’ll update the list ASAP. Shoot us an email at LMULIONSROAR@gmail.com. The three necessities in every player’s backpack still holds: a valid passport, clothes, and basketball shoes. Enjoy!
