PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – One of the most impressive seasons on the local college basketball scene is being put together by Division III Neumann University forward Mark Blount.
The 6’6″ senior, from William Penn High School in Philadelphia, is averaging a double-double for the Knights. He pours in 16.1 points a game while pulling down a Colonial States Athletic Conference leading 11.2 rebounds a game. He also paces the CSAC in blocks, averaging more than three swats a contest.
But Blount says he measures success in more than statistics.
“Being a senior and all, I just think the fun is just the team coming together,” Blount tells KYW Newsradio. “I just think it’s fun, because my last year, coming out and seeing my family and friends at every home game and some of the support coming to the away games. It’s a great environment to be around, the team and the coaches.”
