Lasher’s return to starting lineup pays immediate dividends

January 25, 2016

Colter Lasher BasketballLosing his starting job with Houston Baptist may have been exactly what Colter Lasher of Anchorage needed.

He’s been a beast in the two games since his return.

The 6-foot-7 junior forward has flirted with double-doubles in each of the last two games since being added back to the starting lineup after a three-game demotion to the bench.

Lasher, of Dimond High fame, bagged 16 points and 9 rebounds in tonight’s 109-84 victory over Hillsdale Baptist.

That performance came two days after he collected 15 points and 8 boards in a victory over Lamar that moved Houston Baptist to 7-0 in league.

Lasher made 12-of-21 field goals, including 5-of-8 3s, in the last two games – his best stretch of the season.

He is averaging 9.7 points and 4.9 rebounds in 18 games for the NCAA D1 Huskies.
