Mesa's own Jahii Carson has earned Pac-12 Co-Freshman of the Year honors with Shabazz Muhammad of UCLA, joining Sun Devils Ike Diogu (2002-03), Jamal Faulkner (1990-91) and Byron Scott (1979-80) to earn the honor. He also earned first-team All-Pac-12.

Senior Carrick Felix earned second-team all-league and earned a spot on the five-man Pac-12 All-Defensive Team along with junior Jordan Bachynski, who enters the Pac-12 Tournament needing three blocked shots to break the Pac-12 and Sun Devil season record of 115 set by Mario Bennett in 1994-95.

REMINDER JUST HOW MUCH CARRICK HAS IMPROVED
Last season, Carrick Felix had zero double-doubles. This year, he leads the league with 12 on the year and in Pac-12 games with nine...in Pac-12 games he averaged 13.9 points and 8.7 rebounds. Only Stanford's Dwight Powell (15.6 ppg. and 8.8 rpg.) is equal in those numbers...in overall games Powell and Carrick were the only players at Carrick's 14.2 ppg. and 8.2 rpg...Carrick is shooting .505 from the field this year after shooting .411 in his first two seasons...he averaged 2.8 rebounds in his first two seasons but is at 8.2 this season...he shot .284 from the three-point stripe his first two years but is at .361 this season.

PAC-12 ROAD TRIP? NO PROBLEM
Be hard to find a better Pac-12 road player than Jahii Carson this season, as he averaged 20.8 points in 38.4 minutes and is shot .514 (75-of-146) from the floor and had six 20-point games in nine Pac-12 roadies.

JAHII IN HOTEL GAMES
Jahii Carson averaged 21.2 points in the 12 games away from home this season, as ASU played nine road games and had three neutral site games. He averaged 38.1 minutes and shot .516 from the field (97-of-188) in those games. He had seven 20+ point games away from home, including two of the top Sun Devil freshman scoring games in history with 32 at Washington (Feb. 2) and 30 vs. Creighton in Las Vegas (Nov. 24).

NOTE ON JAHII'S NUMBERS
Jahii Carson is averaging 17.7 points and 5.0 assists and only one freshman in the past sixteen years has averaged 17 points and five assists, as Ben Woodside produced those digits in 2005-06 for North Dakota State (17.5 points and 5.1 assists). Previous to Woodside, the last freshmen to notch those digits was Shaheen Holloway of Seton Hall back in 1996-97, when he finished at 17.3 points per game and 6.3 assists.

BLOCK PARTY
ASU has a school-record 195 blocks in 31 games (6.3 per game). UCLA holds the Pac-12 record for blocks with 199 in 2010-11. In Coach Sendek's first six seasons (197 games) at ASU, the Sun Devils had nine blocks four times. It has had at least nine blocks nine times this season. An overlooked block statistic for junior Jordan Bachynski is keeping it in play. Of his 113 blocks, 70 have resulted in possession for ASU. He has 174 career blocks and the Sun Devil career record is 191, held by Mario Bennett from 1991-95. He needs just three blocks to set the Pac-12 season record, and the top three spots on that chart are Sun Devils.
