Rice Men's Basketball Adds Transfer Seryee Lewis
POSTED: April 20, 2022 -- 10:51 a.m. CT
Wednesday morning, Rice men's basketball coach Scott Pera announced the signing of transfer Seryee Lewis to a grant-in-aid for the 2022-23 school year.
"Today, I am thrilled to announce the addition of Seryee Lewis to our program," said Pera. "Seryee checks all of the boxes we look for in a student-athlete. He is motivated in the classroom and on the court. He will add value to everything we do as a program. As a player, he is very versatile and will add size, skill and athleticism to our front court. Please help me welcome Seryee to Rice University."
Lewis, 6'9" 230, forward, comes to Rice after spending the last two years at Kansas State. Lewis sat out last year after suffering a preseason injury (torn ACL).
As a freshman, he saw action in 18 games, all off the bench. He totaled nearly 100 minutes (98), scoring 36 points and grabbing 20 rebounds. He played double-digit minutes in four games, including a season-high 14 minutes versus No. 2 Baylor (12/19/20). Lewis connected on 62.5% from the floor. He scored in nine games, including a season-high nine points at No. 2 Baylor (1/27/21) on 4-of-5 field goals. He also scored six points vs. Jacksonville (12/21/20) on perfect 3-of-3 field goals.
