Dwight "Bo" Lamar (born April 7, 1951) is a former professional American basketball player. Born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, he graduated from the University of Southwestern Louisiana, now the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
At Southwestern Louisiana, he was a three-time collegiate All-American between 1969–1973. During his college career he averaged 31.2 points a game, a point total of 3,493 points, which remains among the top ranks of NCAA basketball records. He is known for his extremely high long-range shot that some coaches say dusted the rafters.
Lamar was a third-round pick by the Detroit Pistons in the 1973 NBA Draft. He played for three American Basketball Association teams: the San Diego Conquistadors from 1974–1975, then the Indiana Pacers and San Diego Sails in 1976, before moving to the NBA. In 1977 he played for the Los Angeles Lakers.
