Washington Huskies rake in Pac-12 mens hoops honors

Lucky 7

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.

Player Pos G MPG FG% 3P% FT% RPG A STL BLK TO PF PPG
T. Wroten G 30 29:54 .450 .184 .575 4.9 109 59 6 116 81 16.3

Pac-12 Coach of the Year – Lorenzo Romar

Lorenzo Romar, Washington Huskies

Romar took home his third Coach of the Year award this season

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

Tony Wroten

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

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.

Player Pos G MPG FG% 3P% FT% RPG A STL BLK TO PF PPG

T. Ross G 30 30:54 .454 .362 .747 6.6 41 38 28 62 84 15.3

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.

Player Pos G MPG FG% 3P% FT% RPG A STL BLK TO PF PPG

C. Wilcox G 27 28:22 .433 .412 .857 3.3 30 25 18 34 50 13.9


Tony Wroten, Washington Huskies

Freshman of the Year

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.

Player Pos G MPG FG% 3P% FT% RPG A STL BLK TO PF PPG

A. N’Diaye C 28 23:32 .530 .000 .374 7.6 10 15 32 41 82 8.2


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.
