March 1, 2002
EUGENE, Ore. - Senior guard Amanda Levens was named a first-team selection on the 2002 All-Pac-10 Team which was revealed Thursday night at the inaugural Pac-10 Women's Basketball Tournament banquet.
Senior center Melody Johnson was named an honorable-mention all-league selection. Both Levens and Johnson were first-team honorees in 2001 after leading ASU to a share of its first ever Pac-10 Conference title.
Levens, a 5-9 senior out of Belvidere, Ill., leads the Sun Devils in scoring for the second straight year and is ranked fourth in the conference at 17.1 points per game. She also paces the team and is ranked fifth in the Pac-10 with 4.7 assists per game and is one of the top three-point shooters in Sun Devil history, setting the ASU single-season record last year and knocking down 110 treys in her career.
Johnson, a 6-2 senior out of Colorado Springs, Colo., paces Arizona State in rebounding for the second straight year and is eighth in the Pac-10 in rebounding at 6.7 boards per game. She is also second on the team and 12th in scoring at 12.1 points per game. She will finish her career as ASU's career leader in field goal percentage, knocking down 56.0 percent of her shots, and has the second-best field goal percentage in the Pac-10 this year.
Arizona State returns to action Saturday afternoon in its first game of the inaugural Pac-10 Conference Women's Basketball Tournament, taking on Arizona at 2:15 PST/3:15 MST.
The Sun Devils are 21-8 overall and tied for second in the Pac-10 this year with a 12-6 conference record.
