DALLAS (SMU) - SMU basketball standout Quinton Ross has been named an Associated Press Honorable Mention All-American, the news organization announced today.

Ross, a senior guard from Dallas, led SMU to a 17-13 record in 2002-03, including 11 conference wins on the year, the most for a Mustang squad since 1992-93 when the Ponies won 12 Southwest Conference games to win the SWC and advance to the NCAA Tournament, and the No. 2 seed in the WAC Tournament, the Ponies? highest seeding in a conference tournament in 10 years.

The 6-6 swingman finished his career with 1,761 points to rank fourth on the SMU scoring list, averaging a Western Athletic Conference-best 20.3 points and 6.4 rebounds en route to WAC Player of the Year and All-WAC Tournament honors as a senior.
