Burnett Concludes Career With All-State Plaudits


Newport News, Va. -- The Virginia Sports Information Directors unveiled the Men's College Division All-State honorees and amongst those on the list was senior Zack Burnett. The senior guard was named Co-Player of the Year with Virginia Union's Ray Anderson as well as earning a place on the First Team.

The Fairfax, Va. native had a career season, gathering honors such as NABC All-American Second Team, D3Hoops All-South Region First Team, NABC All-South District First Team as well as being named to the NABC Reese's Division III All-Star Game.

The senior guard had one of the best seasons for a Lynchburg Men's Basketball player in recent memory, setting new highs in nearly every category including points per game (PPG), finishing second in the Old Dominion 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. 

From beyond the arc, Burnett, a Business Management major, 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.
