Lasher’s prolific play has Australia pro team in title talk
The rookie forward leads the team in scoring and rebounding as it sits No. 2 in the league at 14-3, one game out of first place, with five games left before the playoffs.
Geraldton’s last regular-season title came in 2014 and the team’s last SBL championship came in 2000.
Lasher is hoping to add some new hardware to the Bucs’ trophy case.
The 6-foot-7 Alaskan is averaging 21.5 points and 8.5 rebounds in 17 games.
He owns six double-doubles with season highs of 35 points and 13 rebounds.
Lasher, of Dimond High fame, collected 19 points and eight rebounds in an 88-80 win over first-place Joondalup, handing the league leaders its first loss at home this season.
