Palmetto's Jordan Smith earns All Tournament honors

Palmetto High product Jordan Smith earned All-Tournament honors in helping Benedict College win the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference post season basketball tournament last week.

The 6-4 guard was at his best in Benedict’s 60-58 semifinal round victory over Morehouse College when he scored a team high 20 points in draining six of 12 attempts from beyond the arc.

Smith scored 18 points in the Tigers quarterfinal victory when canned 4 of 9 three-point attempts in an 82-78 victory. He averaged 12.8 points in Benedict’s four SIAC tournament games.

Benedict College (19-11) will be in Lakeland Saturday to face Florida Southern (29-1) in an NCAA Division II South Region game.

The three day region tournament will be at Florida Southern, which is the top ranked team in NCAA Division II men’s basketball. The eight regional champions advance to the quarterfinals for the 2015 NCAA Division II Men's Elite Eight at the Ford Center in Evansville, Ind.
