David Sanders hopes what happened in Vegas doesn't stay in Vegas.
Sanders, who recently completed his Indiana University East basketball career, attended the 12th Annual Hart Sports Management International Exposure Camp on July 17 and 18 at the Tarkanian Basketball Academy in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Scouts and club representatives from almost 30 countries and various professional basketball leagues attended.
Sanders hopes to continue his career at the professional level after finishing his IU East career with 1,148 points. He also is the Red Wolves' NAIA career leader in assists and steals.
Sanders went head-to-head against competition that included players from every level, from NCAA Division I to NAIA.
"Going there I wasn't sure what to expect, but I went there and saw I could play with those guys," Sanders said. "I played my game and did what I needed to do to compete at that level."
He plans to attend a similar exposure event in Canada in August.
A slight opening is all Sanders needs to thread a pass to a teammate or drive to the basket.
He says he just needs that slight opening to jump-start a professional career.
"I just want to get a foot in the door," he said. "That's my ultimate goal, to be a professional player and play the game I love."
