After their loss against undefeated Randolph-Macon this past spring, University of Lynchburg’s men’s basketball team is eager to play in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Championship this upcoming season due to having an experienced roster this season, and having a main goal is consistency. 

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

Besides his hopes of winning a national championship, Suggs acknowledged his significant role as an experienced fifth-year student by explaining how leadership has to be essential for the team to be successful this season. 

However, Suggs is not the only one who is optimistic about the teams success and determined to have a successful season.

Graduate student Isräel Lockamy `22 said, “This year, I’m going to be more aggressive on both ends of the court knowing it’ll help the team win.” 

In addition to Lockamy and Suggs being hopeful of the successful season, head coach Hilliary Scott feels well prepared for the team’s upcoming season starting. 

“The team’s chemistry is at an all time high, our older guys are showing tremendous leadership bringing along the younger players,” said Scott. 

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