New York Guard Has Terrific Season

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a look at the individual game of a New York City guard prospect who had a very good prep season during the 2010-20111 boy's basketball campaign ...

Danny Lawhorn, a 6-foot guard from New York City who had a solid prep year at the Robinson School in New Jersey, hopes the next season brings him closer to his goal -- playing division one college basketball somewhere.

Lawhorn previously told us he had given a verbal commitment to the University of Maryland-Eastern Shore (UMES). However, his situation changed temporarily and he will now play elsewhere.

LAWHORN ON HIS NEXT MOVE:

"I will no be playing next season at UMES. I'm at Kansas Garden City JUCO for a year with David Laury. I'm looking forward to having a great season and becoming a better player."

PREVIOUSLY REPORTED:

Danny has been gaining confidence handling the lead guard slot for his team and is shooting the ball better from the perimeter.

Lawhorn should have a solid career as a division one backcourt player. "My jump shot is better, more consistent and I'm more confident."

Danny has also been working on his strength so he can finish near the rim more consistently against the bigger bodies inside the paint.

DANNY LAWHORN'S SEASON AT THE ROBINSON SCHOOL:

Danny produced 18 points, contributed 12 assists and four steals to help the Robinson School defeat Rise Academy of Pennsylvania, 102-72 in a key game so far this season.

EVALUATION OF DANNY LAWHORN'S INDIVIDUAL GAME:

*Lawhorn is a tough guard, willing to take the ball to the rim against the bigger bodies. He competes hard on both ends of the court. He has the New York attitude, fearless when it comes to taking the rock to the basket.

Lawhorn has competed at many events as a high school player, including tournaments held at Fordham and in the IS8 Fall and Spring Leagues.
