USC senior Alex Lendrum was named the Pac-12 men’s swimming and diving scholar-athlete of the year at the Pac-12 men’s swimming and diving championships in Federal Way, Wash. on Wednesday. This honor was bestowed just one day after Lendrum took home the conference title in the 200-yard free.Lendrum is a biochemistry major and has accrued a 3.76 cumulative GPA during his college career. The Phoenix native has also qualified for the Dean’s List every semester he has attended USC.Last year, he was named to the Capital One Academic All-America second team and the All-District-8 first team. He is a two-time member of the Pac-12 All-Academic first team, having been selected each of the past two seasons, and was also a 2012 Spring CSCAA Scholar All-American.Lendrum is a member of the Alpha Epsilon Delta Pre-Med honorary fraternity in addition to the Golden Key International honor society. He was the recipient of the USC David X. Marks Foundation Scholar-Athlete Award in 2011 and 2012.His successes that are not tied to his work in the classroom are equally impressive. In 2012, he was a first team All-American, and the year before he was an honorable mention All-American selection. This season, he was named team captain for the second time and last season he took sixth place in the 200-yard back at the 2012 NCAA championships.In 2011, Lendrum took 13th place in the 200-yard back at the NCAA championships, his first individual points at the event. He also took 26th in the 100-yard back and 39th in the 200-yard individual medley.To be eligible for the Pac-12 scholar-athlete of the year award, student-athletes must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher, maintain a senior standing athletic eligibility, compete in at least 50 percent of the scheduled contests in the sport and have at least one year of residence at the institution.Each Pac-12 school can nominate one individual per sport, with the winner chosen by conference staff member at each sport’s season’s end.In adding yet another honor to his trophy case, Lendrum has built up a considerable amount of momentum for himself, as well as the rest of the team, in preparation for the 2013 NCAA championships. The event is scheduled to begin on March 28 and run through March 30 in Indianapolis. USC has not won a national championship since 1977, when it won its fourth consecutive NCAA crown.
“It’s not easy if you in particular are reading your own name in trade rumors,” Kerr said Saturday (per the San Francisco Chronicle). “Anything like that is difficult. I think you understand, after you have been in the league for a few years, that it’s part of the deal.”Kerr went on to say handling the speculation is simply part of the job. Related News Warriors coach Steve Kerr weighed in on speculation surrounding Kevin Durant’s future, though Kerr didn’t reveal any new details. Kerr spoke about the rumors swirling and said it’s not always easy for Durant to have his name in headlines as the media speculates his future. The 30-year-old forward can opt out of his contract after the season and is expected to become a free agent. NBA wrap: Warriors overcome bizarre night from Stephen Curry to top Lakers Durant is already rumored to potentially join LeBron James with the Lakers or head to the Knicks, but Durant said earlier this season that money will be a big factor in his decision.Durant has helped the Warriors win back-to-back NBA championships since joining Golden State in 2016, earning Finals MVP awards each time.Durant, a nine-time All-Star, is averaging 27.5 points, 7.1 rebounds and six assists this season. “You get paid a great salary to play basketball for a living and the upside is pretty awesome, but there are some things that are difficult to deal with as well,” Kerr said. “That’s your job, and you have to do that.”
Russell Westbrook details heated exchange with Jazz fans: ‘I’ll f— you up’ “Oh, I’ve been called n—,” he said, “and it’s crazy because this has happened to me on a few occasions. I reported it to the league, and, you know, I may have said whatever I said back and I was still punished for it. But obviously it became a bigger issue when it was Russ [Westbrook], and he was still fined for it. I don’t really understand it. We’re the product. We push this league, so I don’t understand. When does our safety, when does it become important?” Cousins added: “I don’t really want to [name cities or teams], because I’m not really trying to put a label on an entire fan base. There are ignorant individuals in every city. I’ll just put it like that. … [The league] tells you to ignore it, or whatever the case may be, but how many times am I supposed to ignore that. Me coming from where I come from [in Mobile, Alabama], they lucky all they got was a response.” Related News Draymond Green sounds off on Russell Westbrook’s Jazz fan incident Warriors forward DeMarcus Cousins shared his experience with fan interactions during games on Yahoo Sports latest video podcast, “Posted Up.”Cousins, who is in his ninth season in the NBA, detailed exchanges with fans who used racist language. He didn’t say where these incidents took place, just that it has happened a number of times. After Cousins said he reported the interactions to the league, Yahoo Sports reached out for a comment. The NBA released a statement saying: “While it would not be appropriate for us to address any specific conversations we have with individual players, we review all situations involving alleged fan misconduct. If we confirm the misconduct, appropriate measures are taken directly with the fan in question.”The conversation with Cousins was sparked by an incident that involved Westbrook in Utah. The Thunder guard said after that game a fan told him to “get down on your knees like you’re used to.” The fan was ultimately banned for life while Westbrook was fined $25,000 for his in-game response.“I think it kind of went viral with the whole Russ thing,” Cousins said. “I’m sure that played a part in it. He’s had multiple instances in that same city. You even got the one clip of the guy flipping Russ off. Like, when does the game get that serious for a fan? Why are you that angry? This dude is literally out there putting a ball through a hoop. How do you get that angry? “
