SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Oregon's Joseph Young has been named the Pac-12 player of the year and Ducks coach Dana Altman has been named coach of the year.
Arizona's Stanley Johnson was the freshman of the year, Oregon State's Gary Payton II the defensive player and Washington State's Josh Hawkinson was the most improved player.
Arizona, which won the Pac-12 regular-season title, was the only team with more than one player on the Pac-12 first team, with Johnson, point guard T.J. McConnell and forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson earning honors.
Young and Payton also were named to the first team, with Washington State's DaVonte Lacy, UCLA's Norman Powell, Stanford's Chasson Randle, California's Tyrone Wallace and Utah's Delon Wright.
