For the second straight year, Washington senior guard C.J. Wilcox was voted second-team all-Pac-12 by the conference coaches. The league selects a 10-man first team and a five-man second-team squad.

Washington point guard Nigel Williams-Goss was selected to the conference’s five-player all-freshman team.

The news is probably somewhat disappointing for Wilcox, who finished fourth in the conference with an 18.5 scoring average. He moved into second place on Washington’s all-time scoring list (1,866 points) this season. Wilcox is the school’s career leader with 299 three-pointer and ranks sixth all-time in the Pac-12.

Williams-Goss was considered a darkhorse candidate in the freshman of the year race. He led the league’s freshmen in scoring average (13.3), assists (4.4) and assist-to-turnover ratio (1.6). Williams-Goss also set the UW single-season assists record with 137.

Here’s a look at how the awards were distributed.

Player of the Year: Nick Johnson, Arizona
