Catron Named 2nd Team All-Conference

Eugene Ore. -- Senior forward Joevan Catron has been named to the 2010-11 Pac-10 All-Conference Second Team it was announced by the league office on Monday. Catron is the 41st player in school history to be recognized as all-league, and the first Oregon player to receive the accolade since the 2007-08 season when Maarty Leunen was named to the second team.

Joevan Catron is averaging career-highs for points (15.3 ppg) and minutes played (27.2 mpg) this season, and leads the team in scoring, rebounding (6.3 rpg), field goal percentage (.495) and field goals attempted and made (143-of-289). He ranks seventh in the Pac-10 in scoring and 11th in rebounding.

Catron has scored in double figures in 21-of-28 games this year. On the career, he has led UO in scoring 19 times, with 16 of those coming in 2010-11. Catron is coming off a career-high 28-point effort in last Saturday's game with No. 18 Arizona, in the process becoming the 30th player in school history to eclipse the 1,000-point mark (now with 1,007 points in 124 career games).

Catron is one of three Ducks who have tallied 20 or more points in a game in 2010-11. Of his nine career 20-point games, eight have come this season.

Catron also led the team in rebounding 15 times in 2010-11, the most of any UO player. On two occasions this year he's tallied double-doubles, recording 15 points and 10 rebounds on Dec. 5 against Portland State and a 20-point, 10-rebound performance at Washington on Jan. 6.

Catron was named Pac-10 Conference Player of the Week (Jan. 31-Feb. 6), averaging 18.5 points, 9.0 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game in a home sweep of Washington State and then No. 20 Washington.

He is joined on the second team by DeAngelo Casto (Washington State), Jared Cunningham (Oregon State), Harper Kamp (California) and Trent Lockett (Arizona State).
