Smith alone in carrying La Salle
La Salle junior Steven Smith likely will declare for the NBA Draft in the spring and see if he can crack the first round by playing well at the Chicago pre-draft camp in June.
Can you blame him?
Smith is averaging 21.7 points and 8.3 boards for the 5-13 (1-6 Atlantic 10) Explorers, accounting for roughly 30 percent of the team's offense. He carries more of a load than maybe any other player in a league that has a television contract (read: that you know about on a regular basis).
