Redshirt junior Lamarr Kimble has been named captain of the 2018-19 Saint Joseph’s men’s basketball team, as voted on by his teammates, it was announced by head coach Phil Martelli. This marks Kimble’s third consecutive selection as a team captain.
The 6-0 guard from Philadelphia is returning to the court after being sidelined for all but one game in 2017-18, with a recurrence of the foot injury that caused him to miss the final seven games of the 2016-17 season.
Kimble averaged 15.5 points for the Hawks in 2016-17 before his season was cut short by the injury. The guard topped the team in assists with 4.5 per game despite missing seven contests and scored in double figures 20 times in 24 games, with five games of 20-plus points.
Kimble was a tri-captain in 2016-17, becoming the third player in school history to earn that title as a sophomore. He was then voted as the lone team captain in 2017-18.
The Hawks, who also welcome back 2017 A-10 All-Rookie selection Charlie Brown, Jr., from injury, open the season on November 9 when they host Old Dominion at Hagan Arena.
