Lyron Bennett Accepts Full Scholarship
TechBoston and Boston Warriors guard Lyron Bennett accepted a full athletic scholarship to Southern Connecticut State University late Thursday night.
Bennett had a tremendous high school career, leading Tech to Boston City and MIAA State Championships in both his junior and senior seasons, despite missing the beginning of his senior season with injury.
Bennett finished his high school career with individual accolades to match his collection of championships. He scored 1,145 career points and averaged 18 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists and 2 steals per game as a senior while earning All-Scholastic honors by the Boston Globe.
On the grassroots circuit, Bennett really began to make a name for himself last spring with the Warriors. In fact, it was almost one year ago to date that he was one of the standout performers at the Memorial Day Super 16 Showcase.
After leading the Warriors throughout the 2018 season, Bennett returned to the team this spring and again put up big numbers, standing out as one of the best available players at last month's Northeast Hoops Festival.
He reported upcoming visits to a trio of NE-10 schools at that time, SCSU being one of them, and is now headed to play for Owls' head coach Scott Burrell on a full athletic scholarship.
Bennett is a skilled and smooth southpaw guard who is capable of scoring at all three levels. He shoots the ball with range, has a pull-up game, and a finishing package around the rim.
