BURN THE HORSEFormer UALR Trojan Eric Lawton has landed at Abiline Christian and will play for former UALR assistant Coach Joe Golding.
Lawton played just one season at UALR and served primarily as the backup point guard to D'Andre Williams last season. As Williams played better and better, Lawton's minutes became less and less. He ended up playing only sporadically down the stretch.
Lawton is the second Trojan to land at ACU, which is in the process of moving to NCAA Division I and the Southland Conference. Eric Kibi transferred there before last season and played in 20 of 28 games.
Also of note is that former UALR guard John Fowler, who was the Sun Belt Conference's defensive player of the year his senior year, is working as a student-assistant on Golding's staff this fall.
