With the Regular season over and the Post Season tournaments set to begin, Memphis Tigers Senior Forward Rodney Carney can afford to kick back for a minute, and take in all that he's accomplished this year... The U.S. Basketball Writers of America certainly have. Carney is named to the U.S.B.W.A All-American Second team.
Carney is the Tiger program's first All-American since Lorenzen Wright back in 19-96. Carney is also the First Memphis player named to one of the USBWA's teams since Penny Hardaway earned first team honors in 19-93. Carney is also a Naismith and Robertson Award finalist this season, and First Team All-Conference USA.
