Bloomington, Minn. -- D3hoops.com named University of Lynchburg senior Austin Wrighten (Woodbridge, Va.) to its annual All-South Region third team, the website announced this week.
Wrighten, a guard/forward combination, led Lynchburg to one of the most successful seasons in program history. The Hornets' matched the best-ever regular-season record with a 20-5 mark and reached as high at No. 14 in the D3hoops.com top 25 poll.
The senior was no small part of that success, leading Lynchburg in both scoring (16.9) and rebounding average (9.3). He scored in double figures in 25 of Lynchburg's 26 games and was named Old Dominion Athletic Conference player of the week twice.
Wrighten is the fourth all-region honoree for Lynchburg in the 18-year history of D3hoops.com's teams and the third in the past four seasons.
Five of the 15 honorees came from the ODAC.
