It’s been one heck of a summer for Kyle Fogg.

The former Arizona Wildcat signed a $2 million deal with the Guangzhou Long-Lions in June, and now has led his team, Overseas Elite, to the semifinals of The Basketball Tournament.

Fogg scored a game-high 26 points in the quarterfinals Sunday as Overseas Elite came back to beat the VCU alumni team, Rams Nation, 86-79 in Brooklyn.

Fogg and Overseas Elite will take on Boeheim’s Army — a Syracuse alumni team — in the semifinals on Tuesday, Aug. 1 at 6 p.m. PT in Baltimore. The game will be televised on ESPN.

The championship game will take place Thursday, Aug. 3 at 4 p.m. PT.

Fogg is in search of a three-peat, as his team has won The Basketball Tournament the past two years.

The winning team receives a $2 million prize, which is divided up equally among the team’s members.

Last year, Fogg was the tournament’s MVP, and he used the earnings ($174,000) to help furnish his mom’s house, which he helped buy with the earnings from 2015.

Hopefully he can win a third title and do more cool things for his mom.
