The Owensboro Thoroughbreds are proud to announce that we have offered a training camp spot to 6’3” Combo Guard Lionel Ellison!!

Lionel is originally from New Orleans, Louisiana. He played collegiately at Coffeyville JUCO in Coffeyville, Kansas He then played at Fresno State Athletics in 2015-2016 season

He finished his career William Penn University in Iowa. At William Penn, he averaged 11.3 PPG, 4.4 RPG, 4.6 APG, and 2.3 SPG. He was named an Honorable Mention NAIA D1 All-American and the conference Defensive Player of the Year.

Ellison is an unbelievable athlete with a 40 inch vertical leap and extremely quick. Not only is Ellison a lock-down defender but he has shown great ability to shoot the basketball and can get to the rim with ease.

Lionel was quoted saying “I am excited for the opportunity to come to the TBL and Owensboro. It gives me the ability to compete at the next level and elevate my game on a great platform. I really appreciate Coach Chrisco and the rest of the Owensboro staff for giving me this opportunity.” Lionel has the potential to be a force in our league and we are excited to bring him to Owensboro!
