The award was selected by the Pac-10 radio play-by-play announcers, and named in honor of the late UCLA broadcaster.
Wrenn has started 24 of 26 games this season, and is averaging 20.0 points and 6.4 rebounds for the Huskies (10-17 overall, 4-13 Pac-10) as they head into their final game tonight versus Washington State.
Wrenn is a product of Seattle's O'Dea High School where he was a parade All-American and the 1998 Washington State Player of the Year. He transferred to UW from the University of Connecticut where he lettered for one season (1999-2000) and appeared in 24 games.
This is the first time a player from Washington has been honored as Pac-10 Newcomer of the Year.
