Oregon St.'s sophomore guard Jared Cunningham was named to the All-Pac-10 second team, and to the All-Defensive Team, for the 2010-11 season. The selections are by a vote of the 10 Pac-10 teams' head coaches.

Cunningham averaged 13.6 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game this season, and also led the Beavers in scoring 12 times this season. The All-Defensive team honor recognizes that Cunningham led the Pac-10, and is eighth in the nation in steals, at 2.8 per game. His 77 steals through the end of the regular season is the fourth highest single season total in Oregon St. history, and broke Gary Payton's record set in 1987-88 for a player in their sophomore year, which was 72.

Cunningham also set Oregon St. records for most consecutive free throws made (34, tied with Vince Fritz) and most free throws made in a game without a miss (15). 

Arizona Wildcats sophomore forward Derrick Williams is the Player of the Year, California Golden Bears guard Allen Crabbe the Freshman of the Year; USC Trojans senior guard Marcus Simmons the Defensive Player of the Year, and Washington Husky senior forward Matthew Bryan-Amaning the Most Improved Player of the Year.

Arizona Sean Miller, coach of the regular season Pac-10 champions, is the Pac-10 Coach of the Year.
