PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State junior Carlos Daniel was named to the GTE Academic All-America men's basketball third team Wednesday.

Daniel (Louisville, Colo.), a history major with a 3.52 grade point average, is just the second Washington State men's basketball player ever to earn GTE Academic All-America recognition. He joins Brian Quinnett (1985-89), who was a first team pick in 1989.

Daniel put together his finest season for the 13-17 Cougars. He was second in the Pacific-10 Conference in rebounding (8.3 per game average), tenth in scoring (15.2), fifth in blocked shots (1.6) and seventh in field goal percentage (.519).
