LEBANON – A Former Butte high superstar is back in the pros. Lexie Nelson has signed a pro contract with Sporting Club Chabibeh in Lebanon. She will only be joining the team for the Spanish Cup tournament in Barcelona.
Nelson is arguably one of the best basketball players to ever come out of Butte. During her senior year for the Lady Dogs, the 5’6″ guard averaged 23.9 points per game and Nelson was named the Gatorade Player of the Year in 2010. She left Butte as the program’s all-time leading scorer.
She went on to play college basketball at Montana and then with Eastern Washington.
