Illinois Warriors Career

The Illinois Warriors stormed into the title game of the Real Deal on the Hill Tournament this weekend in Fayetteville, Ark. behind the solid play of guards DJ Richardson (Peoria Central), Darius Smith (Marshall) and Lawrence Thomas (Springfield Southeast).

Richardson scored 27 points in the semifinals against the Atlanta Celtics and Smith had 18 in the second half of a quarterfinal win over Spiece Mo-Kan in the quarterfinals. -,042108club.article


A versaitle guard with a lot of capabilities. Smith is a solid ball handler that pushes the ball well in transition. He is above average body strength for his age, is a solid rebounder and defender, and knows the game well. An outside shot is needed to complete Darius' game.

“Darius Smith is a winner,” Butler said. “Right now he’s a mid-major plus type kid, but he’ll pick up some high-major offers because a lot of coaches will appreciate that he knows how to win. His skill set probably wouldn’t suit the Big Ten, he needs to play somewhere more wide-open.” -,042108club.article
