716ers Add Size with 6’10″ Lawson

Octavious Lawson


Buffalo, NY- One of the biggest needs this offseason for the 716ers was to add a force in the paint on both ends of the floor. This need has been met by the signing of 6’10″, 275 lb. center Octavious Lawson. A native of Jacksonville, Florida, Octavious comes north to Buffalo after playing at Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Florida and the Southcoast Fire of the American Basketball Association. The 27-year-old will anchor a strong 716er frontcourt and present a matchup nightmare for other PBL big men. Coach Slaughter said of Lawson, “We lacked a true center last season, bringing in Octavious will add size, rebounding, and a big presence in the key.” Fans can expect to see big things from “Big O” this season!
