MELBOURNE, FL - Florida Southern men's basketball senior Jonathan Lawton was named Sunshine State Conference Player of the Week for games played between December 10-16. The conference announced Lawton as Player of the Week after he recorded a season-high 30 points against Lindenwood on Saturday.
In the Mocs 99-91 victory over Lindenwood, Lawton shot 50% from the floor and was a perfect 11-for-11 at the line for a total of 30 points. After the first 20 minutes, Lawton only had three points and the Mocs were down by three. The senior from Williamstown, New Jersey stepped up and scored 27 second-half points to help get the Mocs back in the game and take their first lead of the game early in the second half. Lawton also tacked on a team-high six assists, a block and brought down a defensive rebound.
The Mocs are back in action when they host Cedarville on the first day of the Mocs Christmas Classic on Tuesday, December 18 at 7:30 p.m.
