Pac-12 honorable mention for WSU forward and double-double machine Josh Hawkinson

WASHINGTON STATE Josh Hawkinson was named Pac-12 honorable mention on Monday. The junior forward is one of only two players in the Pac-12 averaging a double-double.

Hawkinson averaged 15.6 ppg and 11.0 rpg over the regular season. The only other player in the Pac-12 to average a double-double is Arizona's Ryan Anderson, who was named to the first team (15.8 ppg, 10.2 rpg).

Hawkinson's 9.4 defensive rebounds per game leads the conference and is second nationally. He leads the Pac-12 with 20 double-doubles.

Hawkinson is also among the Pac-12 leaders in free throw percentage (10th), field goal percentage (sixth), minutes per game (sixth) and blocks per game (12th).

Hawkinson was the only Cougar recognized by the conference (first team, second team, all-freshman, defense).  He is the 21st Cougar to earn all-conference honorable mention.

Hawkinson also ranks third on WSU’s single-season rebounding list with 307. He holds the program record with 334 boards, set last season. His 686 career rebounds rank ninth at WSU, and he is No. 3 all-time at Wazzu with 40 double-doubles.

Last season Hawkinson was also named honorable mention by the conference, as well as its most improved player.

Washington State (9-21, 1-17) plays Colorado in the first round of the Pac-12 tournament on Wednesday (Pac-12 Networks, 2:40 p.m.) in Las Vegas.
