Columbia, Mo. - Former University of Missouri Basketball standout Matt Lawrence was recently honored as a National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) All-American.

Lawrence started 25 games for the Tigers this past season, helping the club to a school record 31 wins and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament's Elite Eight. A native of St. Louis, Mo., the 6-foot-7 guard averaged 9.2 points, 2.2 rebounds and 0.9 steals per game for Head Coach Mike Anderson's club last season and finished his four-year tenure as the 40th player in school history to reach the 1,000-point plateau.

"Matt has utilized the weight room to improve his on-court performance," Associate Director of Strength and Conditioning David Deets said. "He comes to each workout with a great attitude and with a desire to improve as an individual as well as adding to the overall level of team play."

In addition to being a 1,000-point scorer, Lawrence finished his Missouri career #2 in three-point field goals (244) and #2 in three-point attempts (614). He was also honored as the Big 12 Conference's Co-Sixth Man of the Year in 2009.

It's the third consecutive season a Missouri Tiger has been honored as an NSCA All-American. Marcus Watkins was named to the team in 2007 and DeMarre Carroll was a 2008 honoree.
