LESLEE SMITH CHOSEN FIRST OVERALL IN PBL DRAFT

(Chicago, IL) - August 26, 2015 - The Premier Basketball League today held their annual Draft with 27 players being selected. Selected first overall was Nebraska forward Leslee Smith. Smith is a current member of the US Virgin Islands national team and a two year starter at Nebraska.

Smith, a 6-9, 240 lb. forward from the US Virgin Islands was a two year starter at Nebraska. Smith averaged 6 points and 5 rebounds for the Huskers as he returned from a devastating ACL tear in less than 6 months. Smith is also a paint defender, blocking over a shot a game for his career.

We are overjoyed to be selecting Leslee," said Mavericks Head Coach Steve Tucker. "He is a talent that is under the radar and someone who has a bright future in this game. His injuries have caused him some problems in the past, but he is injury free and ready to go for this season. The people of Owensboro will be seeing a premier talent this winter when Leslee takes the floor."
