‘Student of the game’ Dedric Lawson abandons Netflix for now, gears for Baylor game

Dedric Lawson’s late-night TV and Internet viewing habits have changed the past couple weeks in his McCarthy Hall apartment on Kansas’ campus.

“I ran out of shows on Netflix,” Lawson, KU’s 6-foot-9 junior power forward from Memphis, said with a smile.

So, since scoring a mere eight points against Eastern Michigan on Dec. 29, 13 points against Oklahoma on Jan. 2 and 13 more versus Iowa State on Jan. 5, Lawson has immersed himself in films of himself — and films of other college basketball players and teams — rather than review any Hollywood releases.

“Like on our iPads … I stay up late and watch (tapes),” Lawson said.
