March 9, 2009

  • Final Radio Show Airs Tonight

    STANFORD, Calif.- Seniors Anthony Goods and Lawrence Hill received all-conference honors for the second time in their careers while Jeremy Green earned a spot on the Pac-10 All-Freshman Team, highlighting Stanford's selections among the 2008-09 Pac-10 men's basketball award winners announced Monday.

    Both Goods and Hill received Honorable Mention recognition, with Goods receiving the honor for the second straight season and Hill adding to his All-Pac-10 honor from two years ago.

    Goods is averaging a team-best 15.7 points per game to go along with 3.3 rebounds per game. He is shooting 41.6 percent overall but has been even more impressive with team-high marks from three-point territory (61-154, 39.6 percent) and the free throw line (118-151, 79.2 percent). Goods has led the Cardinal in scoring on 12 different occasions, registered a career-best seven 20-point games while scoring in double-figures 26 times. His performance at the foul line nearly equals the production over his first three seasons combined (125-165, 75.7 percent).

    An All-Pac-10 honoree two years ago, Hill ranks second on the club in scoring (13.6 ppg) and rebounding (5.5 rpg) and has scored in double-figures in 21 contests. Hill is shooting 50.5 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from three-point territory, in addition to dishing out a career-high 74 assists. Hill has posted two double-doubles on the year, most recently notching a 21-point, 10-rebound outing against Arizona last weekend. Hill has recorded four 20-point games while also leading Stanford in rebounding on 11 different occasions.

    Stanford's first All-Freshman selection since Brook Lopez in 2007, Green is averaging 5.9 points and 2.2 rebounds per game in 29 contests. Green has quickly developed a reputation as one of Stanford's most dangerous three-point shooters, connecting on 38-85 (44.7 percent) chances from beyond the arc. He has scored in double-figures five times and is coming off a career-best 22-point performance against Arizona last weekend in which he nailed six three-pointers.

    Stanford opens Pac-10 Tournament play on Wednesday, Mar. 11, against Oregon State.
