WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Utah men's basketball senior Jason Washburn was named honorable mention All-Pac-12 today in a vote by the conference coaches, league commissioner Larry Scott announced today. Washburn is the first Ute to receive any postseason recognition since the team joined the Pac-12.

Washburn had 20 points and 13 rebounds to propel Utah past No. 19 Oregon 72-62 on Saturday. It marked the first time Utah had beaten a ranked opponent since toppling No. 20 Illinois, 60-58, in Las Vegas during the 2009-10 season.

The Battle Creek, Michigan native notched five double-doubles in league play after tabulating four during his first three seasons in Salt Lake City. He averaged team-highs of 13.5 points and 8.2 rebounds per game while shooting 54 percent from the field. The senior has also connected on 3-of-4 three-point tries while shooting 80 percent from the free-throw line.

While ranking among the league leaders in scoring for the Utes, Washburn also placed ninth in the league in rebounding, fifth in field-goal percentage and sixth in blocks.

Washburn is closing his Utah career with a flourish, scoring in double figures during 18 of the last 21 contests and becoming the 35th player in program history to eclipse the 1,000-point barrier.

The Runnin' Utes play USC in the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena on Wednesday at 7 p.m. on the Pac-12 Network.
