UNC-Asheville coach talks about what Eastside basketball player Luke Lawson brings to the team

Asheville, NC - Lawson decided to join the Bulldogs last week but that came after the Eastside star asked for his release from Mount St. Mary's when the head coach left for Sienna.

Lawson averaged 19 point, 9 boards and four assists a game last season and was a two-time Cumberland district player of the year and for Elizabethton's Morrell, it's extra special to be able to bring in such a talent that's close to his own back yard.

"Getting a guy from SW Va/Tennessee area is exciting I'm from there but we would have recruited him anywhere because of his versatility and his ability to get up and down the floor he's a guy who can play multiple positions can run can jump just very athletic and he's going to fit in real well with our style of play."
