PHILADELPHIA - Saint Joseph's senior Pat Carroll has been named to the NABC Division I All-District 3 Team, as voted on by the member coaches of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). Carroll is now among the 150 student-athletes eligible for the NABC Division I All-American Team.
Carroll is a second-team selection in the district and is joined on that team by Keydren Clark of Saint Peter's, Steve Smith of La Salle, Tim Begley of Pennsylvania and Chris Taft of Pittsburgh. Players named to the first team are Carl Krauser and Chevon Troutman of Pittsburgh, Allan Ray and Curtis Sumpter of Villanova, and Mardy Collins of Temple.
The 6-5 guard leads the Hawks in scoring with 16.8 points per game, notching double figures in all but five contests. Carroll tops the Atlantic 10 in 3-point shooting and is among the nation's leaders, ranking third nationally with 3.6 3-point field goals per game and 12th with his 3-point field percentage of 44.4.
Carroll has helped Saint Joseph's to the best conference record in the Atlantic 10 with a 10-1 mark. In conference play he is averaging 19.5 points per game and converting 52.7 percent of his 3-point attempts.
Carroll has been one of the nation's hottest shooters since the New Year, hitting 49.5 percent of his 3-point attempts since January 5.
A two-time Atlantic 10 Player of the Week, Carroll has scored 20-plus points in six games this season.
Carroll recently reached two career milestones, when he scored his 1,000th career point on February 7 and became the Hawks' all-time leader in 3-point field goals, breaking the record of 231.
