A two-time Bob Cousy Award candidate given annually to the nation’s top point guard, Lawrence has scored in double figures in nine of the team’s last 10 league games. He became the 30th player in school history to reach the 1,000-career point mark and turned in his second consecutive 100+ assist season this year.

 

As the youngest member of the Great Britain National Team and one of only two collegians among the 12 countries competing in The Games, he helped his country to its first-ever Olympic win over China in tournament pool play. Lawrence currently ranks 26th all-time in career scoring with 1,151 career points to date, seventh all-time in career three-pointers made (203) and 10th all-time in career assists (384).

 

For the second year in a row, he was also recognized by the league’s media on the All-Conference Second Team.

 

Davidson’s Jake Cohen was named the 2013 Player of the Year, while head coach Bob McKillop was named the league’s Coach of the Year for the second consecutive season.

 

Samford’s Tim Williams was named the league’s Freshman of the Year and Appalachian State’s Nathan Healy was tabbed the Southern Conference Defensive Player of the Year.
