Gary “Chuckie” Roberson Jr., a former Jacksonville Jaguar from Natchitoches, La. has made the training camp roster of the Shreveport-Bossier City Mavericks, a first-year American Basketball Association franchise that will be playing its home games at Hirsch Coliseum on the Louisiana State Fairgrounds adjacent to Independence Stadium.

Roberson completed his collegiate eligibility at Northwestern (La.) State University last winter where he played in 31 games (started six) and averaged 6.3 points and 2.9 rebounds a game for a Demon team that finished 23-9 and advanced into the NCAA Championship Tournament, where NSU lost to Florida in the opening round.

Shreveport-Bossier tracked third in the ABA Pre-season Power Rankings, which were released Monday.

Roberson was an honorable mention all-conference pick at JC and served as a team captain.

Roberson was coached by Jody Bailey while at JC.
