Notre Dame, Ind. – Chris Quinn (Dublin, Ohio), has been one of five players selected to the 2006 National Association of Basketball Coaches Association (NABC) District 10 Team. He was among 150 players from 15 districts selected for the honor and is now eligible for national team honors that will be announced following the conclusion of the 2005-06 campaign.
Joining Quinn on the five-man squad are Terence Dials (Ohio State), Marco Killingsworth (Indiana), Eric Hicks (Cincinnati) and Brian Thornton (Xavier), while Jay Youngblood (Kent State), Je’kel Foster (Ohio State), Romeo Travis (Akron), Robert Vaden (Indiana) and Brandon Prandon Polk (Butler).
The senior guard is averaging a career-best 18.4 ppg. overall and 21.4 ppg. in conference play. Quinn, a three-year starter, has scored in double figures in 23 games this season topped the 30-point mark on four occasions (all in BIG EAST play). He also leads the team in assists (6.1) and steals (1.6) and has been named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll on three occasions. Quinn is one of just three players in Notre Dame history to score 30-plus point in four conference games in a single season. Pat Garrity was the first Irish player to record four 30-point games in BIG EAST play in 1997-98, while Troy Murphy registered his four 30-point performances during the 1999-2000 campaign.
The two-time Irish captain has played in 118 games during his career (and missed just two to injury) and made 77 starts. Quinn is one of eight players in school history to score more than 1,000 points and dish off better than 300 assists. He has scored 1,383 career points for an 11.7 average and has 388 assists (3.3).
