Lewis Owenby (Black Mountain, NC/Owen) of the Greensboro College menâ€™s basketball team is now GCâ€™s top single-season shot blocker. After swatting away six NC Wesleyan shots on Saturday, the junior post player has a record 45 blocks this year. He eclipsed Jason Sharpe, who had 40 blocked shots in the 2007-08 season.
Owenby set a single-game record with 7 blocks against Guilford earlier this year. For his career, he has 83 blocked shots and now trails only Jerrel Williams on the all-time list. Williams recorded 101 blocks from 1992-96.
Owenby was picked the USA Southâ€™s player of the week last Monday. Against Maryville on Jan. 6, he went 12-12 from the field and set a GC mark for field goal percentage.
â€œLewis is certainly the most improved player on our team and maybe the most improved in the conference,â€ said Pride Head Coach Bryan Galuski. â€œHeâ€™s worked hard in the offseason and it has paid off.â€
