For the second straight year, Penn has landed the most valuable basketball player from the Inter-Academic League.
Tim Krug, a 6-foot-7 academic standout from Penn Charter, told Quakers coach Fran Dunphy yesterday that he had selected Penn over Cornell. At Penn, Krug will join Jerome Allen, the Episcopal Academy star who won the MVP award in 1991.
Krug averaged 19.1 points, 14 rebounds and 7 blocked shots for Penn Charter. He also carries a 3.5 grade-point average, according to Penn Charter coach Brian McMahon, and scored 1,360 on the Scholastic Aptitude Test. He is also a finalist for a National Merit Scholarship and the winner of the Markward Club's scholar-athlete award.
