Lion of the Week
James Beckwith (#3) is a senior guard on the Emerson Men’s Basketball team.
Shooting 43.5% from the field and 53.8% from three-point range, Beckwith displayed his power on the arc in a week that had Emerson pick up back-to-back NEWMAC wins over Wheaton (Mass.) and MIT. In Emerson's triumph over MIT on Saturday, Beckwith went 5-of-9 from the perimeter and shot 55.6% for 22 points, matching his season high. Deep into the second half of Saturday's win, the senior hit three consecutive three's in a span of less than a minute and a half.
Beckwith is from Palo Alto, Calif.
