Senior forward John Brockman was selected most valuable player of the 2008-09 Washington men's basketball team and took home two other awards tonight at the Huskies' annual awards banquet. (The season-highlight video above was shown at the banquet.)
Brockman became the first three-time MVP award winner since Eldridge Recasner (1988-90). Brockman also became the first four-time winner of the rebounding award. He also won the Tyee Sports Council Community Service Award.
Freshman Isaiah Thomas of Tacoma was selected playmaker of the year.
Never miss a local story.
Senior Justin Dentmon received the most inspirational player award and shared the most-improved award with junior Quincy Pondexter. Pondexter also won the Industrial Award. Venoy Overton also was a double winner, for defense and hustle.
Darnell Gant won the Coaches Award for best attitude. The scholar-athlete award went to senior Artem Wallace, a Russian language and literature major.
These Huskies won the school's first outright Pacific-10 Conference regular season men's basketball championship and advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament.
More than 300 people attended the banquet at Hec Edmundson Pavilion.
