Chris Shovlin is a First Team All Pennsylvania shooting guard with quickness and downtown shooting ability. I caught up with him this evening and he had this to say.

"St. Joe's, Rider, Penn State, St. John's, Sienna, Rutgers, Syracuse, Penn State, UMass, Boston College, Cincinnati"

Favorites

"St. Joes, St. Johns, Rutgers, Notre Dame, Rider, Syracuse, Boston College and Cincinnati"

On Rutgers

"It is a nice school and it is close to home. I like the transition game. I fit in with that."

Notes

"I was named First Team Associated Press All State. I have been on the dream team (top five players in the area) for three years. I have been league MVP for two years.

I can do a lot of things. I can penetrate and dish and I can also create shots on my own. I think I have good court sense, I can do what is necessary to get my team a score. I won eight games with buzzer beaters and in the division title I hit a three to take us into double over time. In double over time I stole a ball and passed it to a team mate for a winning score. I can do the types of things that win games."

I have excellent range on my three point shot. I am often shooting from NBA range."

Last Season's Statistics

30.8 PPG, 121 3 pointers with a 37% average from three point range, 114 steals, 127 assists and 172 rebounds.

" I was 76 per cent from the free throw line. I had 50 point game against Seton Catholic and a couple of 45 point games."

Chris has 1780 career points and 253 career three pointers going into his senior season.
