Michael Roll: 1st Team All Conference

New, 44 comments

Michael Roll been selected as first team all Pac 10.

Tyler Honeycutt and Reeves Nelson were selected to the all freshman team.

The Roll selection makes me oddly happy. If ever a guy spent his entire career just trying hard and trying to do what the coaches asked of him, it's Roll. That he will forever be known as an all conference first teamer is a fitting tribute to his tenacity and to the value of doing the little things well.

One of the great "what ifs" of the Howland era is "What if Mike Roll had played with Kevin Love?" Remember, Roll got hurt during Love's only season in Westwood and he and Love never really played together. It's unfortunate, because Mike was/is very good on the entry pass and the constant double-teaming of Love in the post would have created many open shots for Michael.
