Charlie ‘Buckets’ gets his golden ticket | Sports
Outlaw guard Charlie Marquardt has signed on to play in Uruguay next season, according to a post that was shared on the Enid Outlaws Facebook page.
The 6-3 sniper received the nickname “Charlie Buckets” by fans. Marquardt was a key part of the Outlaws’ championship race last season.
He led the Basketball League by 3 points with 125, 39 more than runner-up.
The New York native has shot 48 percent from behind the arc this season, averaging 18.8 points per game.
Marquardt played at Malloy College under his father, Charles Marquardt, and was not drafted in the NBA Draft, but made a short stint in the NBA G-League with the Long Island Nets.
He was selected by the Outlaws in the TBL Draft after attending the combine last year.
Here are the other outlaws who will be playing in the world:
Luge playing ball in Saudi Arabia
Tavares Sledge has signed a contract to play professional basketball in Saudi Arabia next season after spending the past four years playing under Corporal Ed in the Basketball League.
Sledge was a jack-of-all-trades striker for the Outlaws last season and only seemed to improve when the game started to get more meaningful. He scored 39 points, a season-high, in a final victory over Omaha to advance to the conference final and tallied 15 points and 15 rebounds in Game 2 of the TBL Final against Syracuse.
From Enid to Estonia
Omega Harris has decided to continue his basketball career in Estonia after averaging 6.6 points per game and 3.4 assists per game last season.
A Putnam City West product, Harris was the No. 3 prospect in Oklahoma in the class of 2014 according to 247Sports.com. He played four seasons with the Miners, averaging 11.8 points per game over his career despite a back injury in his senior season.

TBL MVP Chance Comanche will play professional basketball in Turkey next season after a dominant first season in the league.
Comanche scored at least 30 points on 14 occasions last season and has been disputed twice without a double-double. He scored 38 points in the team’s victory over Syracuse. The 6-10 forward was undrafted and spent time in the G-League after spending two seasons with the Arizona Wildcats.
