LAWRENCE, Kan. — Kansas junior power forward Dedric Lawson has stretched his game from the lane to past the 3-point line as the 2018-19 college basketball season has progressed.

The 6-foot-9, 235-pound Memphis native, who was 3 of 3 from 3 in KU’s 79-63 victory over Texas Tech on Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse, has made 8 of his last 13 3s (61.5 percent) over the last four games after hitting six 3s in 29 tries (20.7 percent) in the Jayhawks’ first 18 contests.

“I get up quite a few at night,” Lawson said Saturday, referring to hoisting 3-pointer after 3-pointer in the practice gym.
