LYNCHBURG, Va. – Alex Graves paced five Hornets in double-figure scoring with 13 points in Lynchburg College’s 81-64 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) basketball victory over visiting Guilford College Wednesday night.

The Hornets (15-9, 8-7 ODAC) poured in a season-high 14 three-pointers on 46.7 percent shooting in their third straight win. Daniel Rowe knocked in both of his three-pointers during a key 16-5 run in the final 4:45 of the first half. The burst opened a one-point Lynchburg lead into a 44-32 halftime advantage.

Graves netted 11 of his points in the second half, which helped the hosts repel a Quakers’ comeback. Guilford drew to within seven points with just over seven minutes left in regulation, but no closer.
Lyndon White made four-of-five three-pointers and was one of three Hornets with 12 points. Sammy Hooper also drained four triples and finished with 12. Rowe and Austen Arnold also scored 12 points apiece. Arnold, who did not play in Guilford’s 61-56 win over Lynchburg January 14, collected a team-high nine rebounds, plus two assists and two steals.

Guilford’s Matt McCarthy led all scorers with 16 points, 13 of which came in the opening half. Jonny Rice notched his team-leading eighth double-double with 12 points and a game-high 10 rebounds. Trever Hyatt and Will Freeman both added 10 points for the Quakers (17-7, 10-5 ODAC).

Coach Tom Palombo’s team visits nationally ranked Virginia Wesleyan College Saturday (2/21) in the Quakers’ regular-season finale.
