Player of The Year
F Allen Crabbe (Cal)
There are literally 10 to 12 guys that could make a run at this. The only dominant player in the Pac 12 is Josh Smith, but he often battles foul trouble and the front court depth at UCLA will keep him from getting more than 25 minutes per game.

Freshman of The Year
G Josiah Turner (Arizona)
I also like Chasson Randle at Stanford and Tony Wroten at Washington.

First Team Selections
C- Joshua Smith (UCLA)
F- Reeves Nelson (UCLA)
