Four-time PBA Tour champion Francois Lavoie was the top pick Sunday night in the 2020 PBA League Draft powered by BowlerX.

Lavoie, who has two U.S. Open titles to his credit, was selected with the first pick by the Las Vegas High Rollers in the draft, which was broadcast live exclusively on FloBowling.

The Brew City Ballers, the other expansion team in the draft, selected 15-time PBA Tour champion Sean Rash with the second pick.

After selecting Lavoie, Las Vegas manager Amleto Monacelli went on to select Andrew Anderson, AJ Johnson, Richie Teece and Ildemaro Ruiz to complete his roster.

Brew City manager Marshall Holman went the opposite direction as Las Vegas, taking established veterans with his first three picks. Holman’s roster includes Rash, Ryan Ciminelli, Dick Allen, Christopher Sloan and Zeke Bayt.
