Fresno State Basketball: Watson Named Freshman All American, Anderson Back from Injury

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

Days after finishing their best campaign in years, the Bulldogs got a double dose of good news that bodes well for next season's squad.

Losing in the CBI finals may still sting to many Fresno State fans, but the program seems to be trending in the right direction under head coach Rodney Terry.  On Wednesday, news broke on two fronts that portent a promising 2014-15 season.

The first bit of good news is that Paul Watson was one of thirty players named to the Kyle Macy Freshman All-American team.  He is the only representative from the Mountain West, and joins luminaries like Kansas's Adrian Wiggins and Duke's Jabari Parker on the honor roll.  On the season, Watson averaged an even 10 points a game and also contributed 4.4 rebounds per contest, so this should provide a bit of momentum since he figures to assume a larger role next autumn.

The second, more noteworthy development is that forward Braedon Anderson received clearance to resume basketball activities, according to the Fresno Bee.

Anderson missed the entire 2013-14 season because of the injury, but the clean bill of health gives him the good fortune to get back into playing shape over the summer and prepare to be a major key in solving the Bulldogs' frontcourt deficit next season.
