Nate Campbell Earns First-Team All-ODAC Honors: Chillemi on Third Team

FOREST, Va. --- Lynchburg College senior forward Nate Campbell was named to the All-ODAC Men's Basketball First-Team for the second-straight season, and teammate Austin Chillemi earned third-team honors. The all-conference teams were compiled through a vote of the league's coaches.

Campbell and Chillemi have helped LC to a 15-10 record this season, the program's most wins since the 1980-81 season. Campbell averages an even 13 points a game this winter, nailing 46 percent of his shots from the floor. He grabs 5.4 rebounds a contest and has hit 27 three pointers.

Chillemi, a junior center, is the team's leading scorer (14.4), rebounder (6.7) and shot blocker (38). He is eighth in the conference in scoring and rebounding, fifth in field-goal percentage and second in blocked shots.

Lynchburg squares off with Hampden-Sydney College Friday at 3 p.m. in the first-round of the ODAC Tournament.
