Top 30 Seasons Under Bill Self: #12 Dedric Lawson 2019

All Dedric Lawson did in his one year at Kansas was lead the Big 12 in both scoring and rebounding. It’s fair to suggest those numbers are a bit overinflated due to the early season ending injury to Udoka Azubuike and Quentin Grimes being a surprising nonfactor, but Lawson was still incredibly efficient. He has the 2nd highest usage rate at Kansas since 2008, and among players with a usage rate over 25 percent he ranks 4th in true shooting percentage, 4th in offensive rebounding, and has the 2nd lowest turnover rate.

Lawson also led the Big 12 in 2019 in box plus minus and offensive win shares, and was also 6th in defensive win shares, proving he wasn’t just an all offense guy.
