Tremain Lawrence played his role to a tee. Just a sophomore on a squad flanked by juniors and seniors, the 6-4 power swingman has gained from the experience tremendously.
”I had to adjust in the beginning, but I ended up averaging 10 or 12 (points) off the bench,” Lawrence said.
The strong, aggressive southpaw certainly proved himself a highly valued member of the team. He knocked down threes, attacked the rim off the bounce and finished along the baseline with slams. He had some big moments during my viewings — as well as at last weekend’s Super 60 Showdown — and should garner interest from college coaches at a variety of levels during the spring and summer.
He has some improvement goals in mind for the next few months.
”I want to be a strong two guard,” Lawrence said. “I know I need to improve my ballhandling and my shot.”
His recruitment is just at the preliminary stage, with some teams sending letters but no one truly making a big push just yet. He hopes to change all that during the travel season, however, and he’ll run with Team Charlotte on the Under Armour circuit. Thus, he’ll hit events in New Orleans, August, New York, Louisville, Las Vegas and elsewhere.
Lawrence is a solid talent we’ll track closely the next two years.
