After their loss against undefeated Randolph-Macon this past spring, men’s basketball will be looking to get back into the ODAC Championship. The team has an experienced roster this season and their main goal is consistency. 

Graduate student Thranon Suggs `21, has an intrinsic goal more important than obtaining ODACs. “My goal is to win the National Championship,” Suggs stated.

Acknowledging his significant role as an experienced fifth-year, Suggs understands that, “Leadership is definitely going to be essential for us to be successful.” 

Fifth- year graduate student Isräel Lockamy `22, has also taken ODACs loss as a learning lesson. 

 Lockamy stated, “This year, I’m going to be more aggressive on both ends of the court knowing it’ll help the team win.”

Head Coach Hilliary Scott feels well prepared for the team’s upcoming season starting. 

Scott agrees his experienced players are stepping up. He noted, “The team’s chemistry is at an all time high, our older guys are showing tremendous leadership bringing along the younger players.” 

While Scott wants to ensure his teams are learning life lessons outside the court, as, “It’s more important to prepare these guys beyond basketball,” Scott stated. 

With the team approaching their first home game on Nov. 21st, Suggs and Lockamy are on a quest to lead the team and secure a chance at victory.
