Named honorable mention All-American by the AP after a senior season in which he led the Atlantic 10 Conference in scoring with 19.5 ppg...Christmas, a finalist for the Naismith Trophy in 2008-09, is the only player in A-10 history to lead the league in scoring in three consecutive seasons...Ranking fourth on the all-time scoring list at Temple with his 2,043 points, Christmas set a new program mark for three-point baskets with 107 as a senior...The two-time First Team All-A-10 selection holds the Owls record for career three-pointers with 319, making it that much easier to become the first player in program history to log at least 600 points in three straight campaigns...More than just a shooter who took nearly twice as many shots from the field as his closest teammate in 2008-09, Christmas was first on the unit with 51 steals and was second in both rebounding and assists with 5/8 rpg and a total of 98 dishes, respectively...Could be accused of taking some ill-advised shots at times, but the all-everything guard was still the key ingredient in an Owls team that surprised more than a few teams in recent years...A workhorse, Christmas averaged 35 minutes per game as a senior, working through aggressive defenses to get the job done.
