Part of four consecutive OVC Championship teams, Smith scored 781 points in 126 career games for the Bruins.

Smith recorded 39 career double figure scoring games, including his career-high 30-point performance vs. UT Martin (1/5/17) where he tied the Curb Event Center single-game record with 10 3-point field goals.
