JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (May 10, 2004) - Recently graduated senior Zakee Wadood (Lonoke, Ark.) and rising junior guard Tim Smith (Newport News, Va.) were named to the Tennessee Sports Writer's Association's All-State team for the 2003-04 season, giving East Tennessee State University basketball two of the five spots on the team. Voting members of the TSWA include newspaper writers and sports information directors from throughout Tennessee. Wadood, a 6-foot-5 forward, was selected as the Southern Conference Player of the Year in 2003-04, and finished his career as a three-time All-SoCon selection, including back-to-back first-team selections. He earned honorable mention All-America honors from the Associated Press and was named to the All-SoCon Tournament first team for second-straight year. Wadood finished the season averaging 14.8 ppg and was first on the team in rebounding with 8.0 rpg. He scored his 1,000th point on a dunk at the 5:56 mark of the first half against Clemson (12/15) and finished his career with 1,382 points -- which is good for No. 6 on the all-time list. Meanwhile, Smith, a 5-foot-9 guard, was the talk of the NCAA Tournament's first round for a second-straight year, as he almost single-handedly led the Bucs to an upset of Cincinnati (Smith finished with 26 points, four steals, fives assists, five rebounds and just two turnovers against the Bearcats). For the year, Smith averaged a team-high 17.7 points per game and scored over 20 points 12 times, including the final seven games of the year. An All-SoCon first-team selection in 2003-04, Smith finished second in the Player of the Year voting to Wadood. He was named MVP of the Southern Conference Tournament for the second straight year and he has already eclipsed the 1,000-point mark for his career and stands at No. 20 on the all-time scoring list with 1,040. Wadood and Smith were joined on the TSWA team by Vanderbilt's Matt Freije, who helped the Commodores reach the round of 16 in the NCAA Tournament, Chattanooga's Ashley Champion, who helped to Mocs to a division championship and runner-up spot in the Southern Conference Tournament, and Tennessee Tech's Willie Jenkins.
