Former Union College guard Tarik Smith has moved on from the Barbourville campus and right into professional basketball, as the Tempe, Arizona native is currently playing for the Bowling Green Bandits of the American Basketball Association (ABA).

Currently, the ABA is a semi-professional league that boasts teams all across the United States. The Bandits, who play their home games inside E.A. Diddle Arena on the Western Kentucky University campus, play in the Gulf Coast division of the league and boast a 10-1 record at the moment.

For Smith, the transition to professional basketball has been an interesting one.
