2011 NIT, WSU Cougars News And Notes: Abe Lodwick Named Academic All-Pac-10

Regardless of what you think of Abe Lodwick's ability to shoot or how many minutes he should be on the floor or the funny faces he makes at painful moments, you should be very proud as a Cougar of one thing: Lodwick was named to the Pac-10 All-Academic first team today, making this the sixth consecutive year WSU has had a player receive all-academic honors.

Congrats, Abe. You've done us proud.

In case you're wondering if today's announcement is going to Lodwick's head, basketball operations assistant Tim Marrion lets us know that it isn't:

Wichita State takes blue collar ethic to Big Apple vs. Cougars - Spokesman.com - March 28, 2011
Wichita State doesn’t have a star. It doesn’t play in a big conference or in a media center. Coach Gregg Marshall’s team just goes about its work quietly, with balance. The Shockers (27-8 overall, including a 14-4 second-place Missouri Valley Conference finish) have only one player averaging in double figures, 6-foot-8 fifth-year senior J.T. Durley, who scores 11.4 points a game.

A lot of Shockers are big scorers before they arrive at Koch Arena. To win the coach Gregg Marshall way, playing unselfishly is the first order. Eight Shockers average between 5.9 and 11.4 points. Nine Shockers average between 14.2 and 26.3 minutes.

And, for your entertainment this evening, how about two minutes of the comedic stylings of Ken Bone?
