 Frye and Stoudamire among the list of 30 players in contention for Player-of-the-Year honors

 

TUCSON, Ariz. ?- Channing Frye and Salim Stoudamire were named midseason candidates for the 2005 Naismith Trophy, it was announced Tuesday by the Atlanta Tipoff Club.

 

Frye and Stoudamire were included on a list of 30 student-athletes named to the midseason watch list for the Naismith Trophy, presented by Cingular Wireless, which is given annually to college basketball’s player of the year.  Arizona was one of six schools nationally to have two or more players on the list.

 

Frye, a 6-foot-11, 248-pound senior center from Phoenix, Ariz., is averaging 15.0 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.8 blocked shots per game.  He’s connected on 49.4 percent (128-of-259) of his field goal attempts and 83.5 percent (86-of-103) of his free throws.  Through 23 games, Frye has five double-doubles to his credit and has scored in double figures in 14 consecutive games.

 

Stoudamire, a 6-foot-1, 179-pound senior guard from Portland, Ore., is averaging a team-leading 17.4 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game.  He is shooting 52.3 percent (123-of-235) from the field, including a nation’s-best 54.4 percent (68-of-125) from three-point range, and 90.7 percent (68-of-75) from the free throw line.  Stoudamire has finished in double figures 19 times in 2004-05, including nine games with 20 or more points. 

 

The list of 30, along with others who distinguish themselves throughout the season, will be on the final ballot in March.  The player of the year will be recognized at the NCAA Men’s Final Four in St. Louis in April.  The Atlanta Tipoff Club has presented this award annually since 1969.

 

Twelfth-ranked Arizona (19-4, 9-2 Pac-10) will next be in action on Thursday, Feb. 10, at USC.  Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. PST and can be seen FSN Arizona.
