February 6, 2014

Colter Lasher BasketballThe progression of Anchorage’s Colter Lasher at Houston Baptist University continued tonight as the freshman earned a new season high in minutes for the fifth consecutive game.

More playing time has meant more opportunities, and the 6-foot-7 forward has certainly taken advantage of them.

Five days after reaching double figures for the first time, he responded with his finest offensive game with a career-high 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting.

Lasher, of Dimond High fame, has made 4-of-7 3-pointers in the last two games after going 7-for-20 to open his NCAA D1 career.

He has averaged 4.5 rebounds in his last four games, twice his season average.

He is averaging 4.1 points and 2.3 rebounds in 18 games. Since Jan. 16 his minutes have increased from 8 to 10 to 18 to 20 to 26 to 28.

Lasher has started the last three games.
