Lasme is Back

Panathinaikos BC Superfoods announces the returning of Stephane Lasme.

Lasme (2.03m, December 17, 1982) was born in Port Gentil, Gabon. It was there, at a Leon M’ba junior school’s encounter that he was scouted by a… Greek: Steve Lappas, coach of the Massachusetts University. In his first year he was second in place as far as blocked shots in the Atlantic 10 conference, behind 13 minutes average game time. One year prior to his graduation he had 3.9 stops average and was named defender of the year in the Atlantic 10, when in his graduating year numbers were proof of his improvement: He was named All-American, player of the year and defender of the year in his Atlantic 10 season, was number one stopper and rebounder of the championship and second at two-point shooting range, averaging at the end of the season 13.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and 5.1 blocked shots. He also tied Jason Kidd and Michael Anderson’s record to tally 4 triple-doubles in a single season. Only difference being that the two got theirs behind points-rebounds-assists, whilst he nailed his behind points-rebounds-blocked shots.
