ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Virgin Islander Leslee J. Smith has been named in the British Basketball League (BBL) All-Star five following a pair of big performances in the double winning weekend over Cheshire Phoenix.

It was a brilliant weekend for Bristol and the Flyers’ forward was instrumental in the south-west franchise completing a win-double.

Smith racked up an excellent double-double at Cheshire Phoenix on Sunday April 9, 2017 after he landed 15 points and also garnered the same number of rebounds. He shot 66% from the field and was a factor on defence too, as he swatted two shots.

In January Smith was also named in the BBL Team of the Week.

      Leslie. Keep doing your thing that's a great league you're in. I'm hearing good things about you and I'm in Paris at one of my sons workouts.

      Keep working hard and good things will come.
