Scotlandville's Javonte Smart wins gold medal with Team USA U16
BATON ROUGE - You might have to wait until the 2019 NBA draft, but a name to look for may be Scotlandville's Javonte Smart.
The upcoming sophomore just returned from Argentina, where he helped Team USA's U16 team win a gold medal.
Smart said it was his first experience overseas, especially in a spanish-speaking country.
He also said putting on the red white and blue was a dream come true, especially after watching the NBA guys win an Olympic gold medal in 2012, then a FIBA Championship in 2014.
