GoMocs.com is providing a weekly summer series highlighting the Chattanooga Mocs basketball program. This consists of a brief feature below and the attached highlight video from the 2012-13 season. This week’s spotlight shines on rising junior Lance Stokes.
Stokes battled through a painful 2012-13 season. A foot injury in game three kept him out of the lineup until mid-January costing Stokes 14 contests.
He ended up making 18 appearances with seven starts once again showcasing his versatility. He began the year as a key reserve to Z. Mason in the post before moving to the three later in the campaign. His averages of 2.9 points and 2.1 rebounds per game do not do justice to what he brought to the squad overall as a “glue” guy.
Here are a few of Lance’s season highlights:
>Scored a career-high 13 points with four rebounds and a steal in the helping lead the home win over Samford.
> Career-best five assists in home triumph over The Citadel while tying his high in steals with three in just 18 minutes of playing time.
>Posted three steals three times in 2012-13 with the other two occasions coming in the season-opening victory over Tennessee Temple and against SEMO. He came off the bench for seven points, three rebounds and those three steals in 15 minutes suffering his foot injury in the final minutes of the SEMO contest.
>Season-high four rebounds against Samford, Tennessee Temple and at Georgia Southern where he played a career-high 35 minutes in his first start of the season at Georgia Southern.
