Dick Censits (originally spelled Csencsitz) was a three-year varsity basketball starter from 1955-56 to 1957-58, and was named to the Philadelphia All-Big Five first team each of those years.

           

Censits finished his Pennsylvania career with 1,220 points and 867 rebounds, and is one of only six players to average double figures in both scoring and rebounding for his career.  As a junior he was awarded the Arthur Kiefaber Award as the team’s most valuable player, and as a senior won the Bus McDonald Award as the team’s most inspirational player.  He was a first team All-Ivy League selection as a senior.

 

Censits was elected to the Big Five Hall of Fame in 1981.  In January 1983, he was the recipient of an NCAA Silver Anniversary Award for his accomplishments as a college athlete and his subsequent achievements in the business community.

           

Still a very significant and active member of the Pennsylvania community, Censits is a trustee of the University and a member of the Board.
