All-Ivy League 2nd team (2017)
CIT Championship Winner (2016)
At 6'10" 230 lbs., what separates Luke from other Forwards in the 2017 NBA Draft Class are his ability to
stretch the floor, along with his ability to play-make from the high-post. Luke is a highly-skilled lefty, with
soft hands & floor vision, which enable him to operate effectively in the paint and on the perimeter. Luke
played all four years of college ball at Columbia University, where as a Senior (2016-17), he was named
2nd-team All-Ivy, averaging 15.1 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.9 assists & 1.2 steals, while shooting 55% from
2, 37% from 3 & 80% from the FT line in 29 minutes per game. Luke shot 52% from the post & over 60%
in transition & off cuts. Luke also held his opponents to 27% on post-ups & 30% on isolations & screen
plays. Luke's best game of the season came at Cornell, when he had 31 points (11-14 FG) & 6 rebounds.
Luke's Grandfather, Connie Simmons, played for The Knicks from 1949-1954, and won a Championship
in 1955, with the Syracuse Nationals.
