(Orlando, FL) – The Florida Basketball Association (FBA) has named Florida Flight rookie Chris Watson their Game Changer Player of the month for June.
Watson set an FBA record-breaking scoring mark in his 3rd game as a professional, notching 46 points against the Tampa Bay Rebels on May 31st, 2014. Watson continued to thrive, averaging 26.3 points and 17.8 rebounds per game while .585 from the field. Chris’s production helped lead the Flight to a 2-2 record for the month of June.
“Chris Watson has exemplified the very best of the high quality talent that exists in the Florida Basketball Association,” said Commissioner Greg Kite.
Watson, who recently graduated from University of Pikeville this past December, hopes the FBA will propel his career to an international level.
“I’d thank the Florida Flight teammates, Coach King and Coach Danish, Commissioner Greg Kite and all of the wonderful people involved in the FBA that are providing us all with the opportunity to continue playing after college,” said Watson. “It’s such a blessing to have a platform like this. I’m just trying to make the most of it.”
Watson and the Florida Flight travel to Lake Wales on Saturday to play the Heartland Prowl this upcoming weekend. The game will have serious playoff implications as both teams are tied for the final playoff spot in the FBA.
