HAMPTON, Va. -- Livingstone College men's basketball standout Mark Thomas has been named the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association Player of the Year as announced by the CIAA Men's and Women's Basketball Coaches Associations on Saturday. Thomas is the first player at Livingstone to achieve this accomplishment.

Playing three seasons as a Blue Bear, Thomas joined the 1,000-point club after aiding Livingstone in its 79-47 win over Lincoln (PA) University. This season, Thomas has recorded 22 double-figure games, including a career-high 42 points against Fayetteville State.

Hill's presence has been felt throughout the entire season. Also a CIAA Preseason selection, Hill ranks fourth in points, averaging 19 per game. Hill has recorded 21 double-figure games. He scored a season-high 37 points against Chowan and has been named CIAA Player of the Week twice.
