Lebanon Valley men’s basketball player Anderson Orr of Wernersville has been named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches Honors Court thanks to his strong academic performance during the 2017-18 season. Orr, a graduate of Conrad Weiser Area High School, received a bachelor of science in business administration.
To earn selection to the NABC Honors Court, members must carry GPAs of 3.2 or higher during their junior or senior campaigns. For Orr, it is his second consecutive NABC Honors Court accolade.
A former D-III News All-America pick, Orr averaged nearly a double-double during his senior season, posting 18.2 points and 9.9 rebounds per contest en route to racking up 13 double-doubles on the year, including one against No. 18 Middlebury in the NCAA Tournament. Orr was named MAC Commonwealth First-Team All-Conference for the third time in his career while ranking 12th in the nation in total free throws made, 25th in blocks per game, and 36th in rebounds per contest.
The team captain was named MAC Commonwealth Player of the Week on three occasions to go along with an ECAC South Player of the Week honor and a spot on the D3hoops.com Team of the Week. Orr is the only player in program history to score 1,900 points for his career (1,946 points) and collect 900 rebounds for his career (910 rebounds). He finished his career ranked fifth on LVC’s all-time scoring list and third on the all-time rebounding list.
Thanks to his strong efforts in the classroom, the versatile big man received CoSIDA Academic All-America recognition and was named a 2018 Jostens Trophy top-10 finalist; just the third LVC player to earn the distinction. He is a two-time CoSIDA Academic All-District honoree, a two-time Academic All-MAC award winner, and he has twice earned spots on the MAC Academic Honor Roll. Orr graduated with a degree in business administration in May.
Orr helped lead Lebanon Valley (18-10) to the program’s first outright conference title since 1995 and its first appearance in the NCAA Division III Championship Tournament since 2005. He was named Second-Team All-Region by D3hoops.com and the NABC, as well as Second-Team All-ECAC for his efforts.
