Lawson Ready to Play for Great Britain


BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- WKU Sophomore big man Ben Lawson has been here before.

Last summer he played for the Great Britain national team in the Under-18 European Basketball Championship and this summer he will suit up again but in the Under-20 championship.

"My first experience last year in the under eighteens was quite challenging for me because it's two weeks of games everyday pretty much and that really challenged me and I got a lot of injuries because I don't think my body was ready for it. And now going into the under twenties it's going to be a higher level of competition but nothing I haven't seen at the college level and I think I'll be a lot more prepared for this one and I think I can make a bigger impact," Lawson said.
