NEW YORK, NY - MARCH 06: Ben Lammers /

Ben Lammers, who recently finished his senior season with Georgia Tech basketball will play in the NABC Resse’s All-Star game on Friday in San Antonio.

Center Ben Lammers will play one more college game this Friday as the Texas native has been elected to play in the NABC Reese’s All-Star game.

The yearly all-star game brings the top senior basketball players in the country to the final four annually to play in the all-star game. Ben is the only Georgia Tech player on this year’s rosters but will have to play with long-time rival, Yante Maten, who spent the last four years at UGA.

For Lammers, the game might be a little more special. Not only will he have the opportunity to play his final collegiate game in his home state, but he will get to play it in his hometown of San Antonio.

Lammers career at Georgia Tech saw the the 6-foot-10, 241-pound center go from a reserve player who averaged just 2.8 points per game his first two seasons to one of the top centers in the ACC. Over the last two seasons, Lammers was an offensive and defensive power for the Jackets. During his junior season, Lammers averaged 14.2 points and 3.4 blocks per game. This past season, Lammers averaged 11.7 points and 2.4 blocks per game. He finished his career at Tech with 1,055 points, 774 rebounds, and 254 blocks.

Lammers pro career aspects are an interesting debate. Some see the now former Jacket as a player who could develop into a nice defensive piece off the bench. Others see that his game is incomplete and may never be NBA material. That being said, Lammers could develop into a solid G-League player who sees occasional NBA time or a quality player over in Europe.

Either way, Yellow Jacked Up wishes Ben good luck on Friday and all his future endeavors!
