Lemons Headed Down South

'12 LaSalle PG Josh Lemons has given a verbal commitment to Southeastern Louisiana University, a Division I program from the Southland Conference. The Lions who finished 15-14 last season, and 9-7 in conference, should expect a big boost in their scoring from the speedy Lemons. A 6'1 scoring point guard with a great first step and deep shooting range Josh is a great get for Coach Jim Yarbrough.

After a busy summer of attending several elite camps all over the region, and playing AAU with his All-Ohio Purple team, Josh strongly considered Morehead State, Elon, and several MAC schools before deciding to make an early commitment to SE Louisiana, which is located less then hour from New Orleans.

As a junior last year Lemons was the leading scorer for the Division I State Champs where he averaged 13.6 points a game. Lemons finished fifth in the league in scoring, first in steals, among the leaders in assists, and was named the GCL-South Player of the Year; to go along with several All-Region and All-State accolades.

Speaking on behalf of the family Josh's father, Dave Lemons, said that the opportunity to earn playing time is what most intrigued Josh about SE Louisiana. Lemons also said that the Lions run a similar offense to what Josh is accustomed to at LaSalle making it an easy transition for him if he is able to earn that playing time.

Lemons makes the third commitment in the GCL so far, joining Moeller C Tony Sabato (Elon) and McNicholas SF Drew Hall (Marysville)
