St. Vincent men's basketball star honored again
The honors continue for St. Vincent College men's basketball star Chris Klimchock. The senior guard recently earned a pair of second-team regional honors after helping the Bearcats to their first appearance in the NCAA Division III Tournament.
Klimchock was named to the all-Great Lakes Region teams by the National Association of Basketball Coaches and D3hoops.com.
He previously was selected to the Presidents' Athletic Conference first team following a season in which he averaged 15.9 points, which ranked second on the team and fifth in the conference.
Klimchock also led the league in free-throw percentage (.836), was second in assists per game (3.5) and was third in 3-point field goals per game (2.3).
Elsewhere, senior forward Devin McGrath was named to the D3hoops.com Great Lakes Region third team after leading the league in rebounding (10.3).
A three-time all-PAC selection and two-time first-team representative, McGrath ranked fourth in the PAC in scoring (16.1) and is the only player in the league to average a double-double this season.
The St. Vincent men's and women's teams have been honored by the College Swimming Coaches Association as Scholar All-America Teams for 2012-13. The women's team also earned the Presidents' Athletic Conference Team Sportsmanship Award.
Teams with a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.0 are eligible. The St. Vincent women's team posted a 3.30, and the men's team registered a 3.05.
St. Vincent defeated 22-time defending Presidents' Athletic Conference champion Grove City, 5-4, in a men's match that lasted 3 1⁄2 hours. St. Vincent sophomore Tony Costantino rallied from one set down to beat Caleb Fuller of Grove City in the final set to give the Bearcats the victory.
