Class of 2003
Keith Schubert came to Bethany from Girard High School in Girard, Ohio, where he earned All-Conference honors in 1996, 1997 and 1998. During that time he was also awarded with Conference Player of the Year honors. As well as his accomplishments on the court, Schubert also excelled in the classroom, earning National Honors Society recognition. Once at Bethany, Schubert continued his athletic prowess on the court. The four-time all-conference performer was named PAC Freshman of the Year in 1999 and was also given the nod as the PAC Player of the Year in both 2001 and 2002. Also in 2002, Schubert earned D3hoops Honorable Mention All-American status after leading the team to the NCAA Tournament and an opening round win over Pitt-Bradford before falling to eventual National Champion, Otterbein, in the second round. In the postseason, Schubert averaged 39 points a game over the two contests.
Schubert also had an impact on the Bethany record books during his time with the Bison. Most notably, Schubert remains Bethany’s all-time leading scorer and the only men’s basketball player in the history of the institution to eclipse 2,000 points, as he ranks first all-time with 2,127 points. Along with the scoring record, Schubert ranks eighth all-time in career rebounds (711) and blocked shots (44). Schubert also has the top scoring season of all time, scoring 759 points in the 2001-02 season, which is 121 points higher than anyone in school history. He also ranks first in free throws made (184 in 2001-02) and is third in points per game (26.2 in 2001-02). His single-game mark of 45 points against Ohio-Eastern in 1999 also tied the school record at the time, a record that hadn’t been reached since 1965.
Schubert currently resides in Girard, Ohio with his wife Dana and their two daughters Gianna and Briella.
