In the Ignite's 10th regular-season game (on Feb. 27, Saturday IST), against the Salt Lake City Stars, Indian prospect Princepal Singh scored his first points in the NBA G League.
He finished with five points in just three minutes of action, including a dunk and a buzzer-beating 3-pointer, in the Ignite's 107-87 loss.
This comes just over a week after the 20-year-old made his seven-minute scoreless G League debut against the Erie Bayhawks.

The dunk, his first G League field goal, made him the third Indian ever - after Satnam Singh Bhamara and Amjyot Singh Gill - to score in the NBA's official development league.

It also made him the first NBA Academy alumni to score points in the G League.
In the loss, which put the Ignite's record at 6-4, Jalen Green - the No. 1 prospect on ESPN's Top 100 in 2020 - scored a career-high 24, a tally which he would surpass in the team's next game against Canton Charge.
