Chris Devine Named to All-Big West Conference Team
Chris Devine of the UCSB Men's basketball team was named to the all-Big West Conference 1st Team. Devine enters Thursday's Big West Tournament quarterfinal game as the Gauchos' leading scorer at 15.5 points per game, and leading rebounder at 6.5 per game. He is shooting 52.4% from the field and 76.9% from the free throw line. In 16 conference games, he averaged 16.5 points and 7.4 rebounds per game, while shooting 53.2% from the floor and 77.2% from the free throw line. He was named to the all-Big West 2nd team his freshman and sophomore years, and the senior was named Honorable Mention last season.
He is fourth on the school's all-time career scoring list with 1,577 points, and is fifth all-time in rebounds with 710. He will be able to add to those totals in the Big West Conference Tournament Thursday in a quarterfinal game in Anaheim.
