PA-M Lofton's game translates on Global Stage presented by presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors
Kenneth Lofton Jr.'s game has an old-school flare.
Dude can work the paint with a plethora of moves that would make NBA Hall of Famer Kevin McHale jealous. He also has a Dennis Rodman-nose for rebounding.
Straight out of Port Arthur, Texas, the 6-foot-7 guard/post had a breakout freshman season at Louisiana Tech, where he was named the Conference USA Freshman of the Year. Lofton has guard skills and was a member of the Port Arthur Memorial Class 5A State Champion team as a sophomore.
Last weekend, Lofton went Global. Lofton led Team USA to gold in the FIBA U-19 World Cup, where he averaged 13 points and five boards a game. He scored 15 of his 16 points in the second half to help Team USA to beat France 83-81 in the finals.
In typical Lofton fashion, he was overlooked for the tournament MVP. Just more fuel for his fire.
Why is nobody talking about @itzjunior34?
He has dominated everyone in the low post this tournament.
All my respects. ❤️🔥 pic.twitter.com/530Odslvcl
