Arizona juniors Jordan Hill and Chase Budinger were named to the Associated Press’ honorable mention All-America team Monday.

Hill averaged 18.3 points for the 21-14 Wildcats, while Budinger averaged 18.0.

Blake Griffin, the sophomore forward from Oklahoma who led the nation in rebounding, was the only unanimous selection for the first team.

Tyler Hansbrough, the consensus player of the year last season as a junior, repeated as a first-teamer.

Joining them on the team were players from schools with little All-America history: sophomores DeJuan Blair of Pittsburgh and James Harden of Arizona State; and junior Stephen Curry of Davidson.

Griffin averaged 21 points and 14.3 rebounds while shooting 63.5 percent from the field. He received 71 first-team votes and 335 points from the same national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25.

Balloting was done before the NCAA Tournament.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
