Auburn women's basketball player selected to participate in Pro Camps

AUBURN, AL – Auburn senior Alli Smalley will take what she hopes to be the next step in her career this weekend as she travels to Indianapolis, Ind., to work out at a pair of camps. Indianapolis is the site of the 2011 Final Four, featuring Connecticut, Notre Dame, Stanford and Texas A&M.

For one of the camps, Smalley was one of just 30 college seniors invited to work out in front of coaches, administrators and scouts from WNBA and overseas professional teams.

"I was really excited about being invited to the camp," said Smalley. "I think it is a really good opportunity for me in what I want to do in the future. I am excited and looking forward to playing against some good competition and getting some good exposure."

At the camps, Smalley will participate in individual workouts consisting of agility tests, sprints and shooting drills. Along with the other players invited to the camp, she will play in a pair of scrimmages Friday and Saturday.

Smalley, a native of Arab, Ala., averaged 12.3 points and 3.3 rebounds per game as a senior. She holds Auburn's career record for 3-point shooting with 219 on her career. She also tallied 1,601 points, making her one of just eight players every at Auburn to tally more than 1,600 points.

With her sights mostly set on playing overseas in the fall, Smalley has not ruled out taking a shot at the WNBA.

"I am not sure how realistic it is, but playing in the WNBA is something I would like to do if given the opportunity," said Smalley. "Even if I don't get drafted, I will still work for a tryout or to make a training camp. I am just staying positive and taking the opportunities that are coming my way right now."
