2004-05 Men's Basketball All-Conference Team

3/7/2005

Senior David Doubley garnered Big West Player of the Year honors for conference champion Pacific and headlined the 2004-05 men's basketball All-Conference Team, announced Big West Commissioner Dennis Farrell today. The league's 10 head coaches also handed out top honors to Utah State guard Jaycee Carroll as Big West Freshman of the Year and Bob Thomason of Pacific as Big West Coach of the Year.

Doubley spearheaded an amazing run through the regular season as the point guard for the Tigers, who enter this week's Big West Tournament with the nation's longest winning streak at 21 games. He became the second straight Pacific player and the fourth overall to collect top individual accolades. Doubley ranked among the conference leaders in six categories, including first with an .892 free throw percentage and tied for 15th in scoring (12.6 ppg). He also was ninth in field goal percentage (.470), third in three-point field goal percentage (.433) and fourth in assists (4.1 apg). Doubley is currently the Big West's career free throw percentage leader with an .897 (157-of-175) mark. The native of Vallejo, Calif. scored in double figures 17 times, including a career-high 23 points against Fresno State on Dec. 21.

Carroll grabbed a chunk of the spotlight in his first collegiate season as the Big West's most accurate shooter from long distance. The 6-2 guard nailed 70 of his 147 three-point attempts for 47.6 percent and averaged 14.4 points per game, the sixth-best mark in the conference. Carroll also finished fourth in field goal percentage (.535) and three-point field goals made per game (2.41) among Big West players. His 70 made three-pointers ranks eighth on the Aggie single-season list. He became the fourth Utah State player to earn Freshman of the Year, joining Greg Grant (1983), Kendall Youngblood (1989) and Bryon Ruffner (1991).

Thomason was selected Big West Coach of the Year for the fourth time in his 17th season at Pacific after leading the Tigers to a 25-2 overall record and 18-0 mark in Big West play. The Tigers became just the eighth team in Big West history with an undefeated conference record. Thomason also guided Pacific into the top 25 rankings for the first time since the end of the 1966-67 season, including as high as No. 17 on Feb. 28. In addition to the team's 21-game winning streak, Thomason's troops have won 33 straight regular season and tournament games against Big West opponents dating back to the 2003-04 season. Thomason, who owns a 284-211 record at Pacific, also earned top coaching honors in 1993, 1997 and 2004.

Four seniors and two juniors comprised the All-Big West First Team and two players are repeat honorees. Pacific's Christian Maraker and Utah State's Nate Harris were first team all-conference in 2003-04. A couple of second team all-league players last year, Cal State Northridge's Ian Boylan and Utah State's Spencer Nelson were elected to the first team in their senior seasons. Senior Guillaume Yango joined teammates Maraker and Doubley to give Pacific three All-Big West First Team honorees.
