With the 2016-17 college basketball season fast approaching, Western Kentucky big man and former Great Britain Under-20 Ben Lawson has said he wants to break WKU’s blocked shots record.
Lawson’s 128 career blocks currently rank No. 5 in Topper history; ahead of him are No. 1 Evans (2007-10, 224 blocks), No. 2 Chris Marcus (2000-03, 214 blocks), No. 3 Clarence Martin (1983-87, 198 blocks) and No. 4 Elgrace Wilborn (2005-06, 161 blocks).
“In terms of blocking, I want to see myself on top of that WKU list,” Lawson told Bowling Green Daily News.
“I need to block three a game to pass Jeremy. That would be a pretty cool achievement for me.”
The Senior, who represented the GB U20s in 2014 and 2015, last year had the seventh most single-season blocks in program history, blocking 66 shots, an average of 1.9 per game – good for fifth in Conference USA.
Overall Lawson averaged 5.0 points and 3.3 rebounds on 59.4% shooting, in 16.1 minutes per game.
