The Pac-12 regular season is in the books and it’s time to hand out some hardware. The Washington Huskies finished the season on top, winning the Pac-12 season title heading into this week’s Pac-12 tournament.
They also hauled in some season accolades that were announced just this afternoon by the Pac-12.
Without further ado, I bring to you the Husky haul from the 2011-2012 Pac-12 season.
Pac-12 Freshman of the Year – Tony Wroten
As was expected, or more like hoped, Tony Wroten was awarded as the top freshman in the conference. Wroten finished 4th in the conference in points per game and 2nd in steals per game.
Here is Wroten’s line from the regular season.
Pac-12 Coach of the Year – Lorenzo Romar
In somewhat of a surprise, a VERY pleasant one, Romar took home coach of the year honors. This is his third Pac-10/12 Coach of the Year award, winning in 2005 and 2009 before this season.
His 216-111 record at UW has earned him high regards each season since he’s taken over the Huskies.
All-Conference First Team
Wroten took home his second honor of the day being named to the Pac-12 All-Conference team. He made the team with one Husky team mate.
Terrence Ross electrified crowds around the conference and was awarded for his efforts. Ross finished 5th in the Pac-12 in points per game and 5th in rebounds per game.
Here is Ross’ regular season stat line.
All-Conference Honorable Mention – C.J. Wilcox
C.J. Wilcox was one of the enigmas of the team this year. Wilcox finished 2nd in the Pac-12 in free throw percentage and 9th in the conference in three point percentage.
He was one of the most clutch shooters on the team and stepped up on the free throw line when nobody else could.
Here is Wilcox’s season stats.
Pac-12 All-Freshman Team – Tony Wroten
Wroten brings home another accolade, but this one is a given, especially when he won Freshman of the Year.
Pac-12 All-Defensive Team – Aziz N’Diaye
Aziz N’Diaye was not the prototypical big guy for the Huskies this season. He had a hard time playing the big man down low, but made up for it with his above-average agility for a guy his size.
N’Diaye finished 3rd in the conference in rebounds per game and 9th in the conference in blocks.
Here is N’Diaye’s season stats.
All of these awards except the Freshman of the Year are voted on by the coaches within the conference. Coaches cannot vote for themselves or their players for any of the awards.
