Fourth Titan Receives Invitation to Elite Basketball Showcase
July 18, 2013 - A fourth Eastern Florida State College men's basketball player will participate in this weekend's All-American JUCO Showcase Elite 80 East event in Atlanta.
Damion Smith, a 6-foot, 4-inch guard from Palm Bay, FL and Bayside High, joins Shaheed Davis, Ben Patrick and Torrance Rowe all who received earlier bids. The Elite 80 is an invitation-only event for the nation's best junior college players who are entering their sophomore year.
"This is a great opportunity for Damion," said Eastern Florida Titans head coach Jeremy Shulman who will be attending the showcase as an observer. "I'm really excited for him and the others as well."
The Titans previously competed as Brevard Community College, changing to Eastern Florida State College on July 1, 2013 to reflect the addition of select bachelor's degrees. Eastern Florida competes at the NJCAA or two-year level.
