Senior forward Jaron Lane of the men’s basketball team is this week’s recipient of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina Athlete of the Week at UNC Asheville.


Each week the school selects a BCBSNC Athlete of the Week upon their performance from the previous week's action.


Lane scored a career-high 24 points in UNC Asheville’s 75-61 victory over UNC Wilmington Saturday afternoon at Kimmel Arena. He also grabbed a season-high eight rebounds.


It was the Bulldogs fourth straight win and ended an 11-game losing streak to the Seahawks that dated back to 1975.


Jaron and the Bulldogs are back in action Tuesday afternoon when Asheville hosts Montreat College at Kimmel Arena starting at 2 p.m.
