TUCSON, Ariz. ?- The University of Arizona’s Channing Frye was named to the Collegiate Basketball Award of Excellence watch list, it was announced by the Albuquerque Convention and Visitors Bureau.

 

Frye was included on the list of 25 male student-athletes named to the watch list for the Collegiate Basketball Award of Excellence presented by Creamland Dairies.  The award honors college seniors for their athletic and academic achievement as well as their community involvement.

 

Frye, a 6-foot-11, 248-pound center from Phoenix, Ariz., is averaging 14.9 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.1 blocked shots per game this season.  He’s connected on 50.3 percent (147-of-292) of his field goal attempts and 83.6 percent (92-of-110) of his free throws.  Through 26 games, Frye has five double-doubles to his credit and has scored in double figures in 17 consecutive games.
