Pac-12 (non-conference) awards

With the Pac-12 season beginning tonight when Arizona State takes on Utah, thought it would be a good time to hand out a bunch of imaginary awards to those in the conference who have distinguished themselves. This isn’t a projection of the postseason honors, but basically a recap of the non-conference season.

Player of the Year: Mark Lyons, Arizona

Freshman of the Year: Shabazz Muhammad, UCLA

Defensive Player of the Year: Andre Roberson, Colorado

Most Improved Player of the Year: C.J. Wilcox, Washington

Coach of the Year: Sean Miller, Arizona

 ALL-PAC-12 FIRST TEAM

Allen Crabbe, California

Mark Lyons, Arizona

Brock Motum, Washington State

Shabazz Muhammad, UCLA

Andre Roberson, Colorado

Comment: Crabbe may prevent Motum from winning a second straight Pac-12 scoring title. Muhammad is arguably a top 5 pick in next year’s NBA draft and Lyons looks to be the best player on the conference’s top team.

SECOND TEAM

Jahii Carson, Arizona State

Justin Cobbs, California

Spencer Dinwiddie, Colorado

Solomon Hill, Arizona

C.J. Wilcox, Washington

Comment: Carson will push Muhammad for FOY honors. Statistically it’s been a slow start for Hill, but he’s still a POY candidate.

THIRD TEAM

Jordan Adams, UCLA

Askia Booker, Colorado

Nick Johnson, Arizona

Eric Moreland, Oregon State

Dwight Powell, Stanford

Comment: Moreland gets the nod (for now) over teammates Roberto Nelson, Devon Collier and Ahmad Starks. Other notable omissions include: Stanford’s Chasson Randle and ASU’s Carrick Felix. Oregon has a balanced lineup and no one has stood out from the rest at this point.

ALL-FRESHMAN TEAM

Jordan Adams, UCLA

Jahii Carson, Arizona State

Damyean Dotson, Oregon

Shabazz Muhammad, UCLA

Josh Scott, Colorado

Comment: Unlike recent seasons, there are several candidates to choose and several worthy candidates who won’t make the cut. Notable omissions: UCLA’s Kyle Anderson, Oregon’s Dominic Artis, Utah’s Jordan Loveridge, Arizona’s Brandon Ashley and Kaleb Tarczewski.

ALL-DEFENSIVE TEAM

Josh Huestis, Stanford

Arsalan Kazememi, Oregon

Eric Moreland, Oregon State

Aziz N’Diaye, Washington

Andre Roberson, Colorado

Comment: No guards on this list at this time, but that’s likely to change when it’s all said and done.
