The youngest Ball brother took the route less-traveled on his way to becoming the No.3 in the draft after opting against playing college basketball and heading Down Under to play in Australia's National Basketball League (NBL).
Ball impressed in his lone season in Australia, averaging 17 points, 7.5 rebounds, 7.0 assists, and 1.7 steals with the Illawarra Hawks, going on to be named Rookie of the Year.
