Nabors starring on basketball court at Lamar University
By BARRY BURLESON
Justin “Jay” Nabors has a new nickname at Lamar University. It’s “Grasshopper.”
That’s because he’s the Cardinals’ best leaper. As a junior the 6-6, 215-lb. forward was second on the team in rebounding, 6.4 per game, and he led the Southland Conference in offensive rebounds, 3.1 per game. He was also Lamar’s third leading scorer, averaging 11.2 points per game, and dunks were common.
