Lester scored 21 tonight in a 81-70 win over Lake Norman

I hope Lester is good. His team is bad.

I blame Lester for not growing up in a more basketball-rich community.

Lester scored 20 tonight in a win over LKN HS.  Eclipsed the 1,500 point mark in HS.

At one point there was some talk of the Niners recruiting West Charlotte PG Mark Blackmon.  Looks like he made the all conference 2nd team.  Not sure if there is still any interest though.

I think Normmm was probably right all along, we'll be really good next year.

I didn't realize it until he got up to leave, but Lester and a friend sat right in front of us during the homecoming game Saturday.  Felt a little embarrassed since at one point during the game I was busting on Major a little but also was talking about his recruiting and how I was excited about "this guy named Lester coming in next year that is a true scorer".  We were talking right in his ear so I'm sure he was amused.

I did notice he turned around and kinda laughed at us once, but I didn't put 2 and 2 together soon enough to introduce myself and tell him personally I was excited to have him.

After the game he went down and stood over the player's tunnel for a good 5 minutes and you could tell he was just taking it all in.

Last I saw Blackmon was projected as D2 or Low Major.

Tough test.  1st round playoff game at West Charlotte, defending champs.  We'll see how Lester does.  Good luck!

     In the Myrtle Beach NC SC all star clash played March 17, Lester played 22 minutes , was 4 for 6 shooting, and 4 for 5 from the 3 pt. range .  Appears to be a good performance .

Nice.  I'm sure it was pretty much a glorified scrimmage with little D, but 4 of 5 from three point range is impressive.  Can't wait to see Lester in the Green and White!

Ingram, another 9er target, played in the game as well and scored 9 points (hit 1 3pt shot).

As Niners, the rankings of our players only counts before we sign them. And in some cases it only counts before they narrow their search to all or mostly non-BCS schools.

So welcome again, Top 150 recruit, Shawn Lester!

I wonder if they drop Nerlens Noel from their list after he shocks the world and signs here?

It's hard to take a website's rankings seriously when they do this EVERY time we sign somebody in their Top 150.  Me thinks that Rodney White or Curtis Withers would be dropped out of the Top 150 should we be signing them now.  All they are doing is discrediting any integrity they might have had in order to butter their bread from their BCS patrons.

Bring it Shawn.  Time to rain some 3's and rain on the Rivals BCS parade.

How the heck can they write that article and never mention where he signed?

Is he enrolled? How is he doing in school? Will he be eligible next year?

Just looking at program history, I don't recall someone who sat out not being eligible.

I see him around campus every so often and have seen him at several MBB games over the course of the year. Also, heard he played in intramural basketball and dominated.
