Stanford's Fields on All-Pac-10

Green earns a spot on the all-conference second team

There was no question Stanford's most valuable player this men's basketball season was senior Landry Fields. His consistency of performance both on the court and in the locker room was a major reason why he was recognized as a first team selection on the All-Pac-10 team announced Monday. Sophomore Jeremy Green earned a spot on the second team.

Fields averaged 7.1 points and 3.7 rebounds over his first three years, playing in the shadows of Brook and Robin Lopez and then a senior class that included Anthony Goods and Mitch Johnson.

This season belonged to Fields. He produced one of the most consistent seasons in school history.

Fields ranks ninth in the nation in scoring at 22.2 points per game after becoming the first Stanford player to lead the Pac-10 in that category since Casey Jacobsen in 2001-02.

In addition to leading all conference players in 20-point games (20), double-doubles (12) and minutes played (36.1 per game), Fields ranked second in the league in rebounding (8.7 per game). Fields is one of five players in school history to score more than 600 points in a single season. He has 667 points this year, third on the all-time single-season list behind only Adam Keefe, who scored over 700 points twice.

Fields has scored in double-figures in every game this year, becoming the first Stanford player to accomplish that feat since Keefe in 1991-92 (29 games).

Green was an All-Freshmen team pick last year and continued his emergence as one of the Pac-10's premier players this year.

Green averaged 16.9 points per game this year, a total that ranks second on the team and sixth-best among Pac-10 players. Green's scoring average this year is 10 points better than last year's 6.4 points per game clip as a rookie.

Green, who leads the Pac-10 in three-pointers made (90) while ranking 21st nationally in three-point field goals made per game (3.0), also broke Casey Jacobsen's record for three-pointers made in a single season when he knocked down two triples against Arizona on Feb. 27.
