PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State University senior Kyle Weaver has been named as an Honorable Mention All-American by CollegeHoops.net, the organization announced.
Earlier this season Weaver was named to the All-Pacific-10 First Team, Pacific-10 All-Defensive Team, U.S. Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) Men's All-District IX Team and National Association of Basketball Coaches District 14 First Team.
In his senior season, Weaver was second on the team in scoring with 12.2 points per outing and led WSU in steals (60) and free throws made (126). He also ranked second on the team in rebounding (184) and assists (151). He led WSU in scoring seven times, rebounding eight times, assists 17 times, steals 19 times and blocked shots 13 times and had 23 double-figure scoring games (including the final six games of the season) and three 20-plus point games (the only three of his career).
