NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — The Virginia Sports Information Directors (VaSID) released its 2018-19 College Division All-State Men's Basketball Teams on Wednesday, and Washington and Lee senior forward Roy McMillan (Raleigh, N.C./Broughton) garnered first team honors. 

McMillan finished the year as the top scorer in the ODAC at 18.5 points per game. He was also fifth in the league in rebounds per game (8.9).

McMillan eclipsed 1,000 career points this year in a 75-63 win at Eastern Mennonite and is 17th on W&L's all-time scoring list with 1,236 points. He is also fourth in program history in made three-pointers (151) and seventh all-time in blocks (80). He had 28 blocks this season, which was seventh in the conference.

This is the first all-state accolade for McMillan, and he is just the third player in program history to be named to the first team. Clayton Murtha '18 and Greg Bienemann '08 were also named to the first team during their careers.

Earlier this year, McMillan garnered D3hoops.com Third Team All-South region laurels and First Team All-ODAC honors.

The Generals finished the season 19-8 overall, falling in the semifinals of the ODAC Tournament to Randolph-Macon. The 19 victories were the most for the Blue and White since the 1988-89 team went 20-7, and it marked just the 10th time in program history W&L won at least 19 games in a season.
