Standing at 6 feet 6 inches tall, Kevin Misevicius displays his advantages on the basketball court.
Hailing from Allentown, Pa., Misevicius has broken many records in his career as a basketball player. You would think that he has had years’ worth of practice. Now a senior business administration major, Misevicius wasn’t even participating in the sport four years ago. He picked up the sport once he started college.
After graduating from Emmaus High School in 2006, Misevicius attended Lehigh Carbon County College in Schnecksville, Pa. As a beginner, he scored a combined 972 points during his freshman and sophomore seasons. After transferring to Cabrini College for his junior year, Misevicius started making headlines in the school newspaper and the athletics Web site.
Misevicius was named ECAC South Region Second-Team All-Star, received D3Hoops.com Mid-Atlantic Second Team All-Region accolades and earned CSAC First Team Honors. Along with these honorable mentions, Misevicius was also named CSAC Player of the Week twice on Dec.1 and Dec. 16, four-time member of the CSAC Honor Roll, and was named CabriniAthletics.com Student-Athlete of the week twice.
Misevicius set a program record for points scored in a single season with 580 points, established a single-game program record with 41 points, shot a team-best with 51 percent from the floor, and took the team-best with a number of 84 steals in one season. Recently, Misevicius shot a total of 2,000 points in his college career. 1,000 of those points were made as a Cavalier.
For someone who picked up the sport of basketball not even four years ago, Misevicius plays like a professional.
“Kevin is a great teammate because he gives his all to the team on a daily basis. His love for the game combined with his basketball smarts is what separates him from other players,” Chris Blake, senior communication major, said.
