ATLANTA - After helping lead Florida Southern College men's basketball to an appearance in the NCAA South Region semifinal and putting together one of the most prolific offensive seasons in program history, junior guard Jonathan Lawton added to his postseason awards when he was named as a second-team all-South Region selection by the D2 Conference Commissioner's Association (D2CCA) on Monday.
Lawton finished the year with 709 points, the most by any Moccasin since Derek Flowers scored 727 during the 1990-91 campaign. His scoring total is the fourth-highest in school history, while his scoring average of 22.2 points per game is tied for the fourth-best all time and is the best since Flowers (22.7) in 1990-91.
A first-team all-Sunshine State Conference selection and SSC all-newcomer honoree, Lawton scored in double figures in 31 of 32 games this season while posting 20 or more points in 22 games this year. He scored at least 30 points five times this year. He also dished out 100 assists and pulled down 137 rebounds.
