March 12, 2001
BERKELEY - Cal senior forward Sean Lampley, who leads the Pac-10 in scoring with 19.7 ppg, has been named the conference's Player of the Year in a vote of the league coaches.
Lampley is the fourth Golden Bear to receive the honor, joining Jason Kidd (1994), Shareef Abdur-Rahim (1996) and Ed Gray (1997).
Also an All-Pac-10 selection in 2000, Lampley was a member of the Pac-10 All-Freshman team in 1998. In addition to his scoring average, he ranks seventh in the conference in rebounding (7.2 rpg) and 10th in field goal shooting (51.0%).
Earlier this season, Lampley passed Lamond Murray to become the school's all-time leading scorer, and he heads into the NCAA Tournament with 1,763 points.
The Pac-10 award is one of several postseason honors to come Lampley's way this year. The others include The Sporting News Pac-10 Player of the Year, NABC first team All-District and collegeinsider.com All-American.
