Josh Hawkinson and Junior Longrus have both been named to the Pac-12's All-Academic second team.

It is the second postseason honor for Josh Hawkinson, who was named the conference's Most Improved Player after increasing his scoring by 13.5 points per game over last year, the second biggest improvement among all players nationally.

Longrus was a starter in 11 games and a key reserve in the others, averaging 11.7 points per game and playing a key role in the team's win at USC.

Longrus, a junior, earned a 3.30 grade-point average as a management and operations major. Hawkinson, a sophomore, has not yet declared a major and earned a 3.24 GPA.
