PBL League Draft !!!

KY MAVS DRAFT FILLYAW & BLACKWELL FROM KWC!

 The Kentucky Mavericks drafted two players from the Kentucky Wesleyan College 2015-16 Conference Championship team in the Premier Basketball League Draft tonight, Sept 20th.  

Marcus Fillyaw, a 6’1-200-point guard that led the Panthers with his savvy and clutch play last season will join the Mavericks vying for an opportunity with one of the top professional teams outside of the NBA today.

Fillyaw averaged 7.3 ppg, 3.5 apg, and 1.7 steals a game for Kentucky Wesleyan.

Fillyaw is from Topeka, KS and was the Mavs first round selection in the PBL Draft.

In the second round, the Mavericks selected sharp shooting CJ Blackwell from the KWC. Blackwell hails from Los Angeles, CA.

Blackwell was a first team All-Conference selection averaging 13.7 ppg during the 2015-16 season.  His long range sharp shooting helped KWC compile a 27-4 record and a trip to the NCAA II National Tournament last March.

 “We’re extremely happy with acquiring the rights to these two young men.  We feel both can make an impact on our pro basketball team immediately! They come from a winning and championship program at KWC, and we are all about winning with our Mavericks.” stated KY Mavs Head Coach, Steve Tucker.
