Cleveland Cavaliers guard George Hill graduated with a degree from IUPUI on Saturday, right before beginning the Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Celtics on Sunday. Hill is the first member of his family to graduate from college.
Hill received a degree from the university’s School of Liberal Arts. He was also a speaker at the graduation, as you can see here.

Hill spent four years at IUPUI, but he didn’t graduate when he left the school to enter the NBA Draft. He was selected with the 26th overall pick by the San Antonio Spurs, and he has spent the past 10 seasons playing across five teams in the league.
Hill is still a proud alumni, as his tattoo of the school mascot should show.
IUPUI tweeted this about Hill’s accomplishment.
