Kevin Lisch AustraliaNEW427

Former Saint Louis University star Kevin Lisch was named the Australian National Basketball League’s (NBL) Most Valuable Player.

 

In winning the award, the Illawarra Hawks’ Lisch received 93 votes, beating out Melbourne United’s Chris Goulding (84 votes).

 

Lisch also was named the NBL Defensive Player of the Year, and was selected to the All-NBL first team.

 

The 6-4 guard was the NBL’s fifth leading scorer this season at 20.4 points a game.

 

Lisch also led the league in steals (1.8 spg) and was seventh in assists (3.6 apg).

 

“The best way to describe Kevin Lisch is that he is a complete winner,” Illawarra head coach Rob Beveridge said to the Belleville News Democrat. “He is one of the hardest working players I have ever coached.”

 

Lisch was the 2012 NBL MVP while playing for the Perth Wildcats, when he averaged 17.3 points, 3.2 assists, and 3.7 rebounds.

 

He also led the Wildcats to the 2010 NBL championship and was named Finals MVP that year.

 

In addition, Lisch won a Puerto Rican championship with Quebradillas and again was selected as Finals MVP.

 

A college star at Saint Louis University, Lisch was the team’s leading scorer as a senior when he averaged 14.1 points a game.

 

He graduated sixth all-time in career points and second all-time in three-pointers made.
