SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. (AP) -Keon Lawrence has transferred from Missouri to play basketball at Seton Hall.
Lawrence can practice with the Pirates this season, but he can't play in games until the 2009-10 season.
``Keon is an incredible recruit for us,'' Pirates 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 Tigers in field goal attempts and averaged 11.0 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists.
Lawrence averaged 31.2 points at Weequahic High School as a senior.
