LEWISBURG, Pa. – Bucknell senior Chris McNaughton, already one of the most highly decorated players in Patriot League history, added another milestone on Friday when he became the league’s first three-time winner of the Patriot League Scholar-Athlete of the Year award in the sport of men’s basketball.
An electrical engineering major with a 3.34 cumulative grade-point average, McNaughton is the ninth student-athlete to earn Scholar-Athlete honors three times in the same sport in the 17-year history of the league, and his selection is the ninth for Bison men’s basketball players in 17 years.
McNaughton is the second Bucknell student-athlete to receive Patriot League Scholar-Athlete recognition this week, following in the footsteps of pole vaulter David Mante, who won for men’s indoor track.
Bucknell now has a league-high 106 all-time Patriot League Scholar-Athlete honorees.
After earning a spot on the men’s basketball all-rookie team as a first-year student in 2003-04, McNaughton went on to garner First Team All-Patriot League honors in each of the next three seasons, becoming Bucknell’s first three-time first-team all-conference selection in 12 years.
