Around the World

SCU basketball alum Lloyd Pierce ’98 is moving from Atlanta to Indianapolis, with a pitstop in Tokyo.

From Georgia to Tokyo to Indiana, Lloyd Pierce ’98 is on the move. Following two and a half seasons with the Atlanta Hawks, Pierce was hired as the lead assistant coach with the Indiana Pacers in July 2021. But before officially setting up shop in Indianapolis, Pierce detoured to Japan to work with the USA men’s national basketball team at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The U.S. players won gold, by the way, for their fourth consecutive Olympics. “It’s an honor to receive this opportunity to represent our country and to work with such great coaches and staff,” says Pierce, who played all four years at SCU before coaching there from 2002 to 2007.
