Lynchburg College men’s basketball knocks off Bridgewater 66 – 62
Behind Austin Chillemi’s 20 point performance, the Lynchburg College men’s basketball team knocked off Bridgewater College on the road yesterday 66 – 62. Chillemi, who is in the top five in rebounds per game and field goal percentage in the conference, posted eight boards while shooting over 50% from the field.
Tucker Lucas was the only other Hornet in double figures as Lynchburg moved above .500 in Old Dominion Athletic Conference play with a 7 – 6 record. Brandan Connor had a solid afternoon with nine points, six boards and five steals while senior Nate Campbell grabbed ten rebounds and added seven points.
The win ended a two game conference skid for the Hornets as they remained in fifth place in the standings. Lynchburg now looks ahead to Wednesday as the travel crosstown for an ODAC match up with rival Randolph College.
The Hill City rivals have not faced off in hoops this year and split their two games last season with both programs winning on their home floor. Wednesday’s tip-off is scheduled for 7 pm and all the action leading up to the game can be found right here on Hill City Sports.
