April 22, 2013
Columbia, Mo. - Missouri Basketball's Laurence Bowerswas tapped into the National Leadership Honor Society Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) last week, one year after being named to the Mizzou 39 class of 2012.
One of the most well rounded Tigers during his five years in Columbia, Bowers finished his college tenure as the first Mizzou Basketball player to earn a Master's degree during his playing career.
Omicron Delta Kappa was founded at Washington and Lee University in 1914 and recognizes individuals who have attained a high standard of efficiency in collegiate activities with the purpose of inspiring others to achieve similar accomplishments. The society brings together students and faculty from all phases of collegiate life.
The Alpha Xi chapter of Omicron Delta Kappa selects the best and brightest students based on five major phases of campus life including scholarship, athletics, campus and community service, journalism, speech and the mass media and the creative and performing arts.
Bowers finished his collegiate playing career this season and is 26th all-time in scoring at Mizzou with 1,248 points. He is second all-time in career blocked shots (157) and earned Second Team All-Southeastern Conference honors. The 6-foot-8, 227-pound forward was Mizzou's 2013 Team MVP after averaging 14.1 points and 6.1 rebounds. He recorded seven 20 point games and produced seven double-doubles, including three consecutive at home vs. Florida, LSU and Arkansas to close out his Mizzou Arena career.
Bowers joins current Tiger Head Coach Frank Haith as a member of Omicron Delta Kappa. The second-year head coach was honored by the group last season after leading the Tigers to a 30-5 overall record and the 2012 Big 12 Championship.
