Mid-Major Madness Player of the Week: Chris Hass, Bucknell Bison

New, 2 comments

When you carry your team single-handed for a half, and you are winning at the end of that half, you deserve to be recognized.

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

It is going to be hard to forget the performance that Chris Hass put on in the first half against Army on Dec. 2. The senior went 11-for-11, and finished with 32 points in the first half.

The more amazing thing is that the rest of his team made just one basket during the opening 20 minutes, and it took until 2:36 remaining in the half before that happened. Hass finished the half with a jumper that came with eight seconds remaining, and put Bucknell ahead 37-36.

Hass would go on to score six points in the final 1:15 to reach the 40 point mark and seal the win for the Bison. He would add three rebounds, two assists and a steal against the Black Knights.

That would probably be enough in itself to win the player of the week, but just a few days prior, Hass scored 22 points against Navy, on 8-for-12 shooting. He would add five assists, five steals and three rebounds in the win.

For his impressive performances, Hass is our Mid-Major Madness Player of the Week.
