Gani Lawal Makes Indelible Mark with His New 'Recipe'

Feb. 5, 2009

GREENSBORO, N.C. – There’s a kind of consistency you can pencil in and another kind you can write with permanent ink.

Consider double-figure rebounding for Gani Lawal in the latter category.

No one in the ACC this season has worked harder on the boards than the Georgia Tech sophomore. He leads the league with a 10.4 average in all games and a 10.9 mark in league contests. In seven conference games, Lawal has grabbed 10 rebounds five times and 17 rebounds once. His ACC low so far is nine.

“Rebounding is just one thing – effort,” he said. “I can’t get every one, but in my mind I think that everything that comes off the rim is mine and that’s how I attack it. I take that attitude and try to add good position when the ball is shot, whether we have it or we’re on defense. Once it comes off the rim, go get it.”
