Lynchburg, Va. -- A pair of 24-point performances earned Lynchburg men’s basketball’s Connor Schroeder the Hornet of the Week honors this week.

The junior forward from Blacksburg, Va. began the week with 24 points and nine rebounds in LC’s nail-biting loss to Washington and Lee on Thursday evening, and he followed that up with 24 points and six boards in the Hornets’ overtime win at Roanoke on Saturday. Schroeder was a sizzling 10-for-19 from 3-point territory over the two games.

The former All-ODAC selection is currently leading Lynchburg’s team in blocks and is second in rebounding, scoring, and 3-point shooting.
