TUCSON, Ariz. – Arizona men's basketball player Eugene Edgerson was named to the 2001 Pacific-10 Conference Men's Basketball All-Academic team, announced Wednesday by the league office.

Edgerson, a 6-foot-6, 237-pound forward from New Orleans, La., was one of five players named to the first team. A graduate student in Teaching and Teacher Education, Edgerson carries a 3.80 cumulative grade point average. He was joined on the first team by Ryan Forehan-Kelly, Dennis Gates and Morgan Lingle of California and Shawn Redhage of Arizona State.

A tri-captain for the Wildcats this season, Edgerson averaged 4.6 points and 4.0 rebounds in 34 games, while shooting 57.6 percent from the floor. He helped the squad advance to the National Championship game in the NCAA Tournament by averaging 5.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and shooting 71.4 percent from the floor in six tournament games. He is the first player in Arizona to appear in two NCAA Final Fours.
