Kris St. Clair, a senior guard for the Providence College men’s basketball team, was named the National Christian College Athletic Association Student-Athlete of the Week for Men’s Division II Basketball on February 10.
St. Clair averaged 25 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2.5 steals over a four game stretch, including a 64-62 win over NCCAA opponent Faith Baptist Bible College. The two-point win marked the first time that Providence had ever beaten FBBC in the history of their men’s basketball program. On February 3, St. Clair recorded a career high 46 points, including eight three-pointers, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 steals as he led the Freemen in a closely fought 73-70 loss to the MCAC #1 ranked Rebels at Red River College in Winnipeg.
A native of Kenora, Ontario, St. Clair is in his fourth and final year at Providence and is looking to end his college career on a high note. With only weeks remaining in the Freemen’s season, the talented guard has played some of his best basketball of late. In the days prior to being named NCCAA Student-Athlete of the Week, St. Clair led his team to consecutive wins over Northern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference opponent Oak Hills Christian College. In the first victory he recorded 21 points, 11 rebounds, 9 assists, and 8 steals. In the Freemen’s second win, he scored 32 points, had 8 assists, and a career high 17 rebounds.
