Hamilton also played for the South Bay Squad as a rookie in 2002-23, averaging 14.1 and 4.6 rebounds in 29 games.

Baugh went undrafted after declaring following two seasons with TCU, and two before that at Memphis. Last year with the Hornet Frogs, he averaged 12.6 points, 5.8 assists, and 4.7 rebounds in 29 appearances.
