Sells Signs With LMU Railsplitters

Senior Livingston Academy basketball standout Matthew Sells signed his National Letter of Intent on Thursday to continue his basketball career with the Railsplitters of Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, TN.

Lincoln Memorial is a Division II school that competes in the South Atlantic Conference.

Last season, the Railsplitters went 32-1 with a 32-game win streak and advanced to the NCAA Division II Southeast Regional Championship before the season ended due to Covid-19.

This year, Sells plans to work hard and try to earn himself some playing time on the star-studded roster.

“Down there they’re all about working for everything you get… so I’m going to try to go down there and earn everything I can,” Sells said.
