UNC Asheville senior men’s basketball Jaron Lane is this week’s Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina Student-Athlete of the Week.


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


Lane led the Bulldogs to two key Big South Conference home victories last week. He scored 17 points, 15 in the second half to lead Asheville to an 86-73 win over Campbell on Wednesday night.


He then scored a career-high 29 points with six rebounds in Saturday’s 75-72 triumph over defending BSC champion Liberty. Jaron was 10-of-14 from the field and 6-of-8 from the free throw line to help the Dogs get the victory.


Jaron and the Bulldogs are on the road twice this week. Asheville plays at Radford Thursday night in a game that will be televised nationally by ESPNU starting at 7 p.m. and at Presbyterian College Saturday night at 7:45 p.m. Saturday’s game with the Blue Hose can be seen on ESPN3.
