Pondexter, Holiday Dominate UW Postseason Awards

With all of the focus on new Husky Aziz N’Diaye, nearly forgot to post the results of last night’s team awards banquet.

He also won the 101 Club Scholar-Athlete award for academic achievement and the Harshman Trophy for the team’s top rebounder.
Justin Holiday received the Hec Edmundson Most Inspirational award and the Wurster Award, which is given to the player that displays the most hustle.
Holiday and Venoy Overton were co-recipients of the John Meyers Defensive Player award.
Isaiah Thomas won the Industrial award for being the hardest worker and the Playmaker of the Year award.
For the second straight year, Darnell Gant won the Coaches award, which is given to the player that displays the best attitude.
Matthew Bryan-Amaning claimed the Most Improved Player award and Brendan Sherrer took the Brandon West walk-on award.
For the first time in UW history, the entire team was presented the Tyee Sports Council Service Award.

USC signed 7-foot junior college transfer DeWayne Dedmon, who will redshirt next season.
