Lance still holds the NCAA record of more field goals without a miss in a single game with 20FG made versus Augustana in 1984 and also with 28 consecutive field goals in a three game spam his name is on the NCAA record book.

Lance was a double double machine during his career in Europe and someone who would make you pay from the elbow if you give him a metre.

On this episode we talked about his decision of switching Nebraska for North Dakota State after his second year in college, how Pat Riley and Jerry West called him to tell him he was drafted by the Lakers in 1984, his adventures in France, we talk about some of his teammates like Abdul Jeelani, Todd Murphy, Mike Schlegel (rip), Audie Norris, etc,etc

Lance liked very much his time in Spain and you can tell he embraced the culture and the language every time he speaks. It was a real pleasure having the opportunity of chatting with him.

Este esel unico partido que he podido encontrar. Lance Berwald con el N.14 jugando en el Caceres
