The committee, comprised of the most forward-thinking Teamworks partners from around the country, will converge on Teamworks’ headquarters in Durham July 15-17 to help shape the future of athlete engagement and drive the development of best practices throughout the athletics industry.

Bringing together leaders from the NCAA Division I basketball landscape, representing 11 universities and seven conferences, the committee will also explore ways to engage and empower the student-athletes of today and rising generations.

A consensus first-team All-American and ACC Player of the Year in 2011, Smith helped lead Duke to three consecutive ACC championships (2009-11) and the 2010 NCAA title during his tenure as a student-athlete.
