Wildcat duo earns first team kudos; Hassan Adams an honorable mention pick

 

TUCSON, Ariz. ?- University of Arizona men’s basketball players Salim Stoudamire and Channing Frye were named to the all-Pacific-10 Conference team, in voting released this week by the league’s head coaches.

 

Stoudamire and Frye  were each named to the 10-man all-conference squad, which included five seniors.  Arizona was one of three schools to have two players earn all-Pac-10 accolades.  Teammate Hassan Adams was an honorable mention all-conference selection.

 

Stoudamire, a 6-foot-1, 179-pound senior guard from Portland, Ore., earned all-Pac-10 honors for the first time, after earning honorable mention recognition in each of the last two years and being named the Pac-10 Freshman of the Year in 2002. One of the deadliest shooters in the nation, Stoudamire leads Arizona in scoring (18.2 ppg, 2nd Pac-10), free throw percentage (.895, 1st), three-point field goal percentage (.530, 2nd), and three point field goals made (3.31 pg, 1st). He is also second on the team in field goal percentage, hitting 51.5 percent of his shots. Stoudamire was named the Pac-10 Player of the Week three times in 2005, and five times in his career.  On Feb. 21, he hit a school-record nine treys against Oregon State. He is sixth on Arizona's career scoring list (1,826 points) and is currently tied with Jason Gardner atop Arizona's three-point field goals made list with 318.

 

Frye, a 6-foot-11, 248-pound senior center from Phoenix, Ariz., received all-Pac-10 honors for the second straight year. He leads the Wildcats in rebounding (7.5 rpg, 5th Pac-10), blocks (2.10 bpg, 2nd) and field goal percentage (.524, 7th), while averaging 15.6 points per game, second-most in Arizona's high-octane offense and eighth-most among conference players. A defensive force in the paint, Frye's 236 career blocks trail only Anthony Cook's 278 in Arizona and Pac-10 history. He has collected 919 career rebounds, good for third place on the Wildcat career charts, and 23rd in league annals. Frye has scored 1,674 career points, eighth most by a Wildcat.

 

Adams, a 6-foot-4, 212-pound junior guard from Los Angeles, received honorable mention kudos after averaging 12.5 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game during the regular season.  He is shooting 48.0 percent (158-of-329) from the field and leads the Pacific-10 conference with an average of 2.2 steals per game.  Adams has finished in double figures 25 times in 2004-05 with two double-doubles.  He was an honorable mention all-conference pick last year as well.

 

With Stoudamire and Frye on the Pac-10’s first team, a total of 30 Arizona players have earned 44 all-conference honors since joining the league in 1878-79.

 

No. 8 Arizona (25-5, 15-3 Pac-10) will next be in action on Thursday, March 10, at the 2005 Pacific Life Pac-10 Tournament in Los Angeles.  The Wildcats open play in the quarterfinals against California.  Tip-off is scheduled for 12:20 p.m. PST and can be seen nationally on Fox Sports Net.
