March 6, 2009
TCU senior Kevin Langford (Fort Worth, Texas | University of California) was selected to the National Association of Basketball Coaches All-District 17 second team, which was announced on Friday (Mar. 6).
A product of Fort Worth, Langford has been a mainstay in the TCU rotation in each of his three seasons with the Purple and White where he has started 89 consecutive games, which places him seventh in the Frogs' all-time career games started list.
The 6-8 forward became the 15th player in program history to post over 1,200 career points for the Frogs and has tallied 1,210 career points for the Purple and White. Langford has collected 65 double-digit scoring performances during his career and needs 10 points to surpass Marquise Gainous for 14th place in the career points' standings.
Langford ranks third on the all-time free throws made (411) and free throw attempts (592) in the TCU record books, becoming only the third player in program history to surpass the 400-free throws made mark for his career.
This season, Langford is averaging 14.2 points per game to go along with 4.6 rebounds per evening for the Frogs. The Fort Worth talent has connected on 49.6 percent (123-of-248) of his field goal attempts and a team-high 78.2 percent (158-of-202) of his free throw tries.
Joining Langford on the second team were fellow Mountain West Conference counterparts Brandon Ewing (Wyoming), Tony Danridge (New Mexico), Rene Rougeau (UNLV) and Daniel Faris (New Mexico).
