Carl Junction's Trent Smith Commits to SBU


Carl Junction's Trenton Smith is headed to Bolivar, Missouri to continue his basketball career with the Southwest Baptist Bearcats.

Smith was an All-State selection his senior year at Carl Junction, posting 20.3 points per game. He also added 6.6 rebounds per game and shot 47% from three-point range.

"My faith has always been a pretty big factor, and I felt like I could not only grow as a basketball player, but continue to grow my faith as well," Smith says, "I also plan on going into business, and I really like their business program up in Bolivar."

Southwest Baptist is entering its final season in the MIAA. The school announced back in May that it would be leaving the league and accepting an invitation to join the Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC).
