Following a spectacular all-around senior season, Carleton College wing Scott Theisen was named to the D3hoops.com All-West Region First Team. While his numbers even surpassed these levels, he was the only NCAA Men’s Basketball player across any level (Division I, II, and III) to average more than 16 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 steals this season.

The dynamic duo of seniors Tom Sawatzke and Scott Theisen were tabbed to the 2012-13 Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) Men’s Basketball All-Conference Team. This is Sawatzke’s second straight year a member of the All-MIAC team, making him the 28th player in the history of Carleton men’s basketball to be a repeat all-conference selection. Sawatzke and Theisen both joined Carleton’s 1,000-point club this season, becoming the 26th and 27th members respectively.

Senior Scott Theisen was sensational. The versatile wing’s career-high tying 31 points helped the Carleton College men’s basketball team nearly knock off the nationally No. 1-ranked University of St. Thomas in the semifinals of the MIAC Playoffs. Theisen’s stellar performance, the highest post-season point total by a Knight in at least 15 years, was not enough, though, as St. Thomas used a late run to snap a tie and advance to the conference championship game by a score of 70-57.

Tom Sawatzke did it again. With the game tied, under a minute to play, and the shot clock running down, the senior guard drained a contested three-pointer to put the Carleton College men’s basketball team ahead for good in its quarterfinal playoff matchup with Bethel University. The big-time triple, part of Sawatzke’s team-high 19 points on the night, further cemented the senior guard into Knight’s basketball lore and helped push Carleton (16-10, 13-8 MIAC) past the Royals by a score of 48-43 and into the MIAC playoff semifinals.
