HOUSTON - University of Houston women's basketball signee Amanda Lawson starred for the South team in the 4A/5A Texas Girls Coaches Association All-Star game last week at the Delco Activity Center in Austin, Texas. Lawson helped lead her squad with 12 points, six rebounds and a block in an 80-67 loss to the North team.

"I was happy to be playing in the All-Star game," Lawson said. "I was able to meet some girls that I didn't know prior to the game and bond with them, so it was a great experience."

The Bryan native, who started all four years at Bryan High, averaged 22 points and 13 rebounds per game her senior year, as well as earning 5A All-State honors. The 5-10 forward was also named First Team All-District 12-5A each of her last two seasons.

"This was an amazing honor for Amanda," head coach Todd Buchanan said. "This puts closure on a stellar high school career, and playing in this All-Star game is the ultimate complement.

"To be selected says a lot about what kind of player she is. I am very proud of her and the honor it brings to her high school and the University of Houston."

The All-Star Game, which is held as part of the annual TGCA summer clinic, is made up of 4A and 5A high school seniors and showcases top senior talent from across the state. The players are selected through a nomination process by the basketball committee of the TGCA.
