Notes:
Named an All-Big 12 First-Team selection and was a Big 12 All-Defensive Team member following the 2013-14 season ... Candidate for the Naismith Trophy, given to the top college player in the nation ... Led Oklahoma State to the NCAA Tournament, where the Cowboys were eliminated by Gonzaga ... Became the first player in tournament history to record at least 20 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and five steals in a game ... Averaged 18 ppg, 5.9 rpg and 4.8 apg as a sophomore ... Was considered to be one of the top prospects in the 2013 draft, but remained at school for his sophomore season ... For a point guard, Smart is extremely strong, physical and well-built ... Uses his big frame and physicality to drive to the rim, and has excellent body control to finish strong at the basket ... Doubles as a strong passer with great court vision ... Plays extremely tight defense, and anticipates the pass well ... Needs to improve on outside shooting and consistency ... Has had problems with character issues - was suspended for three games during his sophomore season after getting into an altercation with a fan at Texas Tech ... Very passionate player who is considered one of the top non-freshman in this draft class.
