LYNCHBURG, VA – A big second half helped the visiting Bridgewater College men's basketball team post a 79-60 victory Saturday over Lynchburg College in an Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) contest. The four Hornet seniors were honored in a pre-game ceremony.

Lynchburg trimmed the lead to only two at 47-45 after a three-pointer from senior Dylan Hall at the 14:52 mark. Bridgewater extended the advantage to seven, but the Hornets closed to 54-51 after a three-pointer from Daniel Rowe. An Eagle 13-0 run put the game out of reach.
Daniel McClain had 16 points for Bridgewater (12-12/8-8 ODAC), hitting 7-of-9 from the floor. Kenneth Waugh posted 14 points, and Ed Reddick tallied 13 points and a game-high 10 rebounds.
The Hornets (17-8/10-6 ODAC) will receive a first-round bye in the ODAC Tournament, and will compete next Friday at 3 p.m. in Salem, VA against the winner of the #5/#12 seeded game.
