the tools to make an immediate impact in Conference USA. He averaged 14.3 points, 6.5 assists, 5.2
rebounds, and 2.3 steals this past season.
Smith is a Greenville, NC native who attended JH Rose High School before making the trek out to Kansas
for Junior College. Smith picked ECU over a host of high major offers including Baylor, Oklahoma State,
Oklahoma, Georgia State and Western Kentucky.
When asked why he would pick C-USA over a bevy of elite level schools, Tony Responded, "I felt like the
shoe fit, every piece of my heart was in this. I envision a lot of good things happening right away. My mom
and grandma may live 10 or 15 extra years off the joy of seeing me everyday at a high level being successful
on and off the court. I really like the challenge of trying to help coach Lebo and the guys build this thing and
do something special; WIN!
