Connor Schroeder shoots a layup.

Lynchburg, Va. –  The Lynchburg College men's basketball team celebrated Senior Day with an 80-66 victory against the Eagles of Bridgewater College.

Lynchburg honored seniors Logan Seacrist (Fredericksburg, Va.). Hank Gompers (Arden, N.C), Ricky Southerland (Daleville, Va.), and student assistant Bobby Ford (Madison, Va.) before the start of the game.

Junior forward Connor Schroeder (Blacksburg, Va.) recorded a game-high 21 points while knocking down five 3-point shots for the Hornets. He also had three assists. Sophomore guard Chance Greene (Creedmoor N.C) shot an efficient 3-for-3 from downtown and concluded the game with 17 points while snagging six rebounds. The Hornets also received a double-double from junior Austin Wrighten (Woodbridge, Va.) as he finished the game with 12 points and 10 rebounds.
