Dickinson State senior shooting guard Nathan Lebsock was injured in a car accident on Wednesday night in Dickinson. He received 28 stitches on and inside his forehead and was released from the hospital after doctors attended to his injuries.Â Lebsock’s wife, Mekenzie, sustained a concussion and was held overnight for observation.
Details of the Lebsocks’ accident have not been released by the Dickinson Police Department.
Lebsock is the Blue Hawks’ leading scorer, averaging 22.4 points per game, and averages 2.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. He is on track to become the school’s second all-time leading scorer this season. On Nov. 6, he set school records for free throws made and attempted in a game with a 24 of 26 performance as the Blue Haws beat the University of Great Falls (Mont.) 80-75. Lebsock scored 41 points in that game.
Lebsock was back with the Blue Hawks on Thursday afternoon with a somewhat comical-looking bandage over his forehead and some bandages around both knees, which he said were nicked up during the accident.Â He planned to participate in a light shootaround, but was being held out of the team’s high-intensity drills. He plans to be play on Tuesday when the Blue Hawks host Great Falls in a men’s and women’s doubleheader and in next weekend’s Sam Milanovich Classic.
