Motlow Signs New Player
McKelvey is a 6’7”, 240-pound inside presence who comes to Lynchburg from Orangeburg-Calhoun Prep School in Orangeburg, S.C., following an outstanding prep career at RB Stall High School in North Charleston.
While at RB Stall, McKelvey garnered a number of honors, including being rated the #11 prospect in the state by Scout.com. He averaged 12.2 points, 12 rebounds and 4.3 blocked shots per game as a senior and was named all-state. McKelvey was selected to the All-Region VII team after his sophomore, junior and senior seasons.
Following his high school career he headed to Orangeburg-Calhoun Prep, where he played for Head Coach Scott Weaver. Seth was instrumental in leading Orangeburg to a 25-14 record, including games where he pulled down 15 rebounds and a school-record 17 rebounds.
The Bucks finished with a 14-14 record in 2013-14, Sligh’s first season, and advanced to the TCCAA/RegionVII Tournament semifinals before being eliminated by eventual champion Columbia State 122-121 in double overtime.
McKelvey will join an already-impressive roster that should include returning sophomores Kytrel Williams, Jordan Riley, Greg Mason, Reggie Williams, C.J. McEwen and All-American Dequon Miller. Redshirt freshmen Dezon Dozier and Jahaad Lyons will also step into varsity roles.
