Lynchburg, Va. -- Junior men’s basketball player Austin Wrighten is this week’s Hornet of the Week after he helped lead LC to a 2-0 road trip last weekend in Maryland.

The Woodbridge, Va. native scored 22 points to go with eight rebounds and six steals in LC’s season-opening 78-68 victory over McDaniel on Saturday. He followed that with a 15-point, nine-rebound performance as Lynchburg blew past St. Mary’s (Md.), 106-95, on Sunday. His three 3-pointers in Sunday’s win helped the Hornets tie the single-game program record for 3s with 18 in the game.

Wrighten, a 6-3 wing, currently leads the team in minutes played, rebounding, and steals.
