BROCKTON, Mass. ---- Fredi Lawson of the women's basketball team and Chris Green of the men's squad both represented Massasoit Community College on the All-American teams, recently announced by the National Junior College Athletic Association.
Lawson, from Boston, earned All-American Second Team accolades, while Green (Taunton) received the nod on the third team. Both players were also named First Team All-Region XXI as well.
The women's basketball team had a memorable season in 2013-14 and Lawson was in the center of it. The sophomore competing in her first season with the Warriors led Massasoit to the team's first-ever Region XXI Championship and an automatic bid to the NJCAA National Tournament.
On the court, Lawson was a force both inside and out. The 5-foot-7 forward averaged 19.6 points, 12.2 rebounds and 3.1 steals per game. She totaled 17 double-doubles on the season and scored in double figures in 23 of the 24 games she competed in. In two games she totaled 20-plus rebounds and scored a season-high 36 points vs. Quinsigamond.
Green was a sharp shooter for the men's basketball team, averaging 21.5 points, 4.8 assists and 2.5 rebounds per game. The shooting guard, who also played the point, shot 46.7 percent from the floor and a blistering 44.6 percent from 3-point range.
For the season, Green started all 22 games for the Warriors and reached double figures in every contest. In addition, he made at least one 3-pointer in every game and connected for 3-or-more shots from downtown on 19 occasions.
