FOREST, Va. – The Emory & Henry College Men's Basketball Team has earned three spots on the 2019 All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference Teams, ODAC officials announced Wednesday. It marks three years in a row that the Wasps have had multiple players honored by the league. The All-ODAC teams are selected by the conference's 13 head coaches.

Junior guard Daniel Spencer (Concord, N.C.) was named to the All-ODAC First Team while sophomore guard Tharon Suggs (Raleigh, N.C.) earned all-league second-team honors. Senior forward Alic Wynn (Asheville, N.C.) made it back-to-back All-ODAC selections with his spot on the third team.
