St. Vincent College senior guard Chris Klimchock has been named a Capital One Academic All-District 4 first-team men's basketball selection by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
The Greensburg Salem High School graduate is eligible for national academic All-America honors, which will be voted upon later in February.
Klimchock, a psychology major at St. Vincent, was ranked fourth in scoring (15.5 ppg.) in the Presidents' Athletic Conference and was leading the league in assists (3.8 apg.) and assists-to-turnover ratio (1.9).
CoSIDA requires a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.30 as a sophomore in athletics and academics to be eligible for honors, and nominees must have participated as a starter or valuable reserve in 50 percent of their team's games.
District 4 includes NCAA Division III schools in Pennsylvania.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
