Jan. 16: T.C. Thacker, men's basketball

Hornet of the Week: T.C. Thacker shoots the ball.

Lynchburg, Va. -- A pair of career-high scoring outputs earned Lynchburg men’s basketball’s T.C. Thacker this week’s Hornet of the Week honor.

The freshman forward from Madison Heights, Va. has made himself at home in the LC starting lineup. He set a career-best with 12 points and eight rebounds in Wednesday’s Hornet win over Hampden-Sydney, and then he topped it Saturday at Eastern Mennonite with a 14-point output.

After an injury cost him the beginning of the season, Thacker has started the last four games for LC. He’s averaging 4.9 points per game and 3.9 rebounds per game, shooting a scathing 56 percent from the floor.
