Also the ODAC’s regular-season champion, Guilford reached the second round of the 2017 NCAA Tournament and Palombo was named the ODAC’s Bob Johnson Men’s Basketball Coach of the Year.

Guilford made its fourth straight NCAA Division III playoff appearance under Palombo in 2010 and reached the national semifinals for the second year in a row. The Quakers also won their second ODAC crown in three years and finished with a 30-3 overall record, which earned a number-three national ranking in the final D3hoops.com national poll. Guilford also finished third in the nation in 2009 with a 26-6 record. The Quakers broke onto the national scene in 2006-07 with the first of consecutive 24-5 campaigns. For his efforts, Palombo received 2007 South Region Coach of the Year honors from the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and D3hoops.com.

A 30-year head coaching veteran, Palombo has a league-record four Bob Johnson ODAC Men’s Basketball Coach of the Year Awards to his credit. He has directed 13 Quakers to a combined 21 All-ODAC commendations, including four players of the year. Guilford’s Tyler Sanborn ’10 and Ben Strong ’08 both won NABC Division III Player of the Year honors as seniors.
