ODESSA - After one season with the Falcons, UTPB junior guard Jacob Ledoux will forgo is final season of eligibility and enter into the 2019 NBA draft.

Ledoux was named to the 2019 Lone Star Conference First Team and was also named the Conference's Newcomer of the Year. He was then named to the NCAA Div. II South Central All-Regional second team as well.

"We want to support everyone of our players dreams," said UTPB men's basketball head coach Josh Newman. "We will help Jacob every step of the way in the process"
