KUTZTOWN, Pa. – Redshirt-senior Anthony Lee of the Kutztown University men’s basketball team broke the school-record for points in a game with 50 last Saturday, and the accomplishment led to a second consecutive Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) East Athlete of the Week honor, as announced by the league office on Dec. 10.
Lee, who topped his previous career-high of 41 set in the season-opening win over No. 2 West Liberty (11/9), became the first player in Division II this season to hit the half-century mark in points in a game in a 109-97 setback at Pitt-Johnstown on Saturday, Dec. 8. There are just two players across all three NCAA divisions to have hit the mark this season. Lee is just the 16th player in PSAC history to score 50 and is the first in the PSAC since 2004 and only the second since 1994.
In 39 minutes of action against the Mountain Cats, Lee connected on 15 field goals (four shy of the school record of 19), including five three-pointers, and also went 15-for-16 from the free-throw line. He also added seven rebounds, four assists and three steals.
The Willow Grove native is second in DII in scoring at 28.7 points per game. He is second in the PSAC in free-throw percentage (92.2%) and fourth in minutes per game (36.4). His 39.1 three-point percentage ranks 10th.
Lee has now earned back-to-back PSAC Athlete of the Week honors and three this calendar year. He has won six over his career.
The Golden Bears (5-4 overall, 1-2 PSAC) host Wilmington in non-conference action this Saturday, Dec. 15, at 5 p.m. at Keystone Arena.
