Lewis Owenby (Black Mountain, NC/Owen) of the Greensboro College men’s basketball team is now GC’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 South’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.

“Lewis is certainly the most improved player on our team and maybe the most improved in the conference,” said Pride Head Coach Bryan Galuski. “He’s worked hard in the offseason and it has paid off.”
