Best College Athlete - 2009
Apparently, the knack for knocking down three-pointers runs in the Lisch family. Theresa, younger sister of Saint Louis University men's basketball star Kevin Lisch, led the A-10 conference in scoring, averaging nineteen points per game last year and breaking the school's single-season record for total points scored. The junior guard also set school records for free-throws made, career free-throw percentage and points scored in a single game. Lisch has got game off the court too: She was a first-team academic All-American and the A-10 female scholar-athlete of the year, graduating summa cum laude with a degree in communication sciences and disorders. So committed is she to her studies that Lisch elected to forgo her senior season in order to pursue a graduate degree. It's a decision that caused SLU fans to weep and opposing coaches to rejoice.
