Owens Named to 2010-11 D-League All-Defensive Team
The award, voted on by D-League coaches, is the third postseason honor for Owens this week. On Wednesday the forward was named to the All-NBA D-League Second Team and on Thursday was named the 2011 Jason Collier Sportsmanship Award winner.
Owens earned three GATORADE Call-Ups during the 2010-11 season and ended the season on the Washington Wizard’s roster. Owens helped guide Tulsa to its second-straight postseason berth in the 2011 D-League playoffs.
Joining Owens on the first team was Utah’s Orien Greene and Tony Gaffney, Iowa’s Othyus Jeffers, Dakota’s Chris Johnson and Texas’ Sean Williams.
