MID-MAJOR PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Kenny Hasbrouck was named the Mid-Major Player of the Year.BOSTON (MA) -- Recently named as one of the top mid-major players in America, Siena’s Kenny Hasbrouck has now been selected as the best.

The 6-foot-3 junior has named the 2008 CollegeInsider.com Mid-Major Player of the Year, following another outstanding season.

“He can not score a single point, but he will still be the most influential player on the floor,” says CollegeInsider.com’s Joe Dwyer. “Kenny Hasbrouck affects the game in so many ways. He may not get the steal, but he’ll force a hurried pass. He may not get the assist, but he’ll make the pass that leads to the assist. He does all the little things that don’t show up in a box score.”

Hasbrouck started all 34 games and was a first team All-MAAC selection, as he helped the Saints to a share of the regular season championship. He was the team’s second-leading scorer (16.1 ppg) and he led the team in steals (2.27 spg).

He scored in double figures 26 times this season, with a season-best 35 against Marist (Feb. 8). He became the third fastest to reach 1,000 points in Siena’s Division I history (Dec. 9) and he finished his junior season with 1,405 career points, which 8th all-time in school history. 30 of those points came in Siena’s first round NCAA tournament win over Vanderbilt.

“Kenny being the first player to say yes to me, that's very special because he believed in me as someone that could be a part of his career, which is very important to him,” says Siena head coach Fran McCaffery. “He's a special player, he's a special person. And I think you can see his character probably more so than you see his talent. Because when it got a little sticky, he was the guy, and he's been like that for three years.”

Hasbrouck was named the MVP of the 2008 MAAC tournament, after helping the Saints to their first conference tournament championship and trip to the NCAA tournament since 2002. He scored 17 points in the second half after going scoreless in the first half of the come-from-behind win over Loyola in the MAAC Tournament semi-finals.
