Hughes not only answered whatever questions the kids had, but taught them the fundamental ins and outs of the game at an LMC Athletics basketball clinic, alongside coaches Justin Cooper and former NBA player Tyler Lydon. Back in his hometown, the Beacon native and Utah Jazz forward was thrilled to be working with the young players in the Hudson Valley, passing on the knowledge that led him to the professional ranks.

Tyler Lydon considers this Boeheim’s Army run his final salute as a basketball player. The former Syracuse basketball forward, the former No. 24 pick of the 2017 NBA Draft, is nursing a sore right hip and a sore left knee. He needs surgery to repair both physical issues. “I’m supposed to have a surgery on my hip. I have a torn labrum and my bones are rubbing,” he said Sunday after Boeheim’s Army had escaped the Dayton Arena with another Elam Ending victory. “And then my left knee I have another torn meniscus and I have no cartilage in there. So, I’ve gotta get another surgery on that, too.”

He re-tore the meniscus two months ago and received a cortisone injection to dull the pain so he could play in The Basketball Tournament. Sometimes, he feels the soreness, other times it’s manageable. The hip doesn’t seem to be as problematic these days. “It is what it is. Just fighting through it. This is my last time lacing ’em up so I just figured I’d come out there and have fun,” he said. “My body’s taken a toll. I’ve already had knee surgery and I need two more surgeries. It’s enough for me.”
On the same day Jim Boeheim landed a prize recruit, so did Boeheim’s Army with former SU star Donte Greene signing up for another tour of duty. Greene becomes the fourth former first-round NBA draft pick to join the 8-man roster, joining Tyler Lydon, Malachi Richardson, and Chris McCullough. The 28th pick of the 2008 NBA Draft also played for the Army in 2017, when the team made a run all the way to the TBT Final Four.
Storyline: The Tournament
With the NBA season more than halfway to its end, Tyler Lydon again finds himself a free agent mulling his options. The former Pine Plains star said he’s considering the possibility of playing for a team overseas. In the meantime, Lydon is giving back while remaining in basketball form in the process. He is lending his expertise to local athletes by “bouncing around” area gyms to work out and teach younger players the ins and outs of the game.
