HAMBURG, NY - Chris Parrott, a third year player on the men’s basketball team, has been named the Hilbert College Student-Athlete of the Month for November, 2011.
The 6-5 Parrott helped lead the Hawks to a 2-4 non-conference record in the first month of the 2011-12 season. He is the second leading scorer and rebound for the Hawks, averaging 14.5 ppg (45% field goal percentage) and 5.0 rpg. Parrott scored in a variety of ways and typically defended the opponent’s big weapon; he was the team-leader with 6 blocks in November when he averaged 24.8 minutes per game.
Parrott’s best overall performance was against Keuka College in the opening round of the Hilbert Tip Off Tournament when he scored 21 points, shooting 8-10 from the floor (3 for 4 from long distance) and 2-3 from the charity stripe. Against Cazenovia on the last day of the month, the team captain netted 22 points and cleaned the glass for 5 boards in the team’s 82-78 road victory.
Parrott (Warsaw, NY/Warsaw) is a criminal justice major and is expected to graduate in the spring of 2012.
