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.
