Dwight "Bo" Lamar (born April 7, 1951) is a former professional American basketball player.[1] 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.[1] 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.
