SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. (AP) -Former Newark high school basketball standout Keon Lawrence has transferred from Missouri to play at Seton Hall.
Lawrence can practice with the Pirates this season, but cannot play in games until the 2009-10 season.
``Keon is an incredible recruit for us,'' coach Bobby Gonzalez said Tuesday. ``He has a huge name in the state of New Jersey and he's coming back home to Newark. He can play the one and the two. He's a natural scorer and really an electrifying, exciting player that the fans are just going to love.''
Lawrence played in all 32 games and averaged a team-high 29.2 minutes at Missouri last season. He led the team in field goal attempts and averaged 11.0 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists. He had 25 points against Kansas, the 2008 national champion.
