Saint Vincent’s Kromka, Harris claim PAC awards

Bill Beckner
Gateway graduate Tom Kromka is a fifth-year senior basketball player at Saint Vincent.

Another strong run in the Presidents Athletic Conference earned Saint Vincent men’s basketball plenty of respect at postseason awards time.

The Bearcats swept player and coach of the year awards after a 22-5 season and a conference regular-season title.

Senior forward Tom Kromka was named player of the year after leading the PAC in scoring at 17.1 points and was second in rebounding (8.0), field-goal percentage (57.0) and blocks (50).

DP Harris, meantime, was the conference’s top coach. SVC went 14-2 in the PAC and earned the tournament’s top seed before falling to Chatham, 54-51, in its second tournament game.

Also an All-PAC first-team pick, Kromka (Gateway) is the third player from SVC to claim the honor, joining Jaylon Bell (2016) and Dillon Stith (2014). He finished with 1,054 career points.

Harris, the coach of the Bearcats for 16 years, had guided the team to six 20-plus-win seasons in the last seven years, as well as four PAC Tournament titles.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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 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.
