Basketball player Mike Shannon (above, right) concluded an outstanding senior season by being named Constitution Athletic Conference's Player of the Year and being selected to the CAC's All-Star First Team.
The Engineers' leading scorer this year, Shannon became part of a small group of WPI basketball players to eclipse 500 points for a season; he finished with 514 points and 182 rebounds. He made 69 three-point baskets to establish a new single-season WPI men's record; his 148 career three-pointers put him second all-time on the men's list.
In addition to his superlative on-court season, Shannon's 3.5 GPA put him on the GTE CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America) Academic All-America Second Team and the District I First Team.
Shannon ended his WPI basketball career with 1,065 points, 462 rebounds, 187 assists, 123 steals, and a career free-throw percentage of 71 percent.
