Burnett Named NABC Second Team All-American

The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) announced the 2017 NABC Coaches' Division III All-America teams on Thursday, which included senior Zack Burnett on the second team. Selected and voted on by member coaches of the NABC in NCAA Division III, these student-athletes represent the most outstanding basketball players across America in their division. 

After being named to the NABC Reese's Division III All-Star Game this weekend in Salem, Virginia, and NABC First Team All-South District Wednesday, Burnett can now add this accolade to the list.

This is the second year in a row where a Lynchburg player has been named a NABC All-American, with Alex Graves earning first team honors last season.

From beyond the arc, Burnett, the Fairfax, Virginia native set the single game (10 vs. EMU, 2/4), single season (90) and individual career records for three-pointers made (236) this season. He also moved into the top-five on the All-Time Scoring List, passing Terry Tabb on Senior Day following a 30-point performance in the win over Randolph-Macon.

The senior guard had a career regular season, setting new highs in nearly every category including points per game (PPG), finishing second in the Old Domion Athletic Conference with 21.4 PPG. He set a career-high in points after registering 37 against the Marlins of Virginia Wesleyan on Jan. 14th and led the league after scoring 30 or more points in six games.
