The Pac-12 All-Conference Season Honors as voted on by the team's head coaches have been announced, and the Player of the Year is California's Allen Crabbe. Oregon coach Dana Altman was selected Coach of the Year, after leading a Duck squad picked to finish in the bottom half of the league prior to the season to a tie for a second place finish, and a third consecutive 20 win season.

Most beat writers covering the conference agree with Altman's selection.

The closest thing to any all-conference honors for Oregon St. were an honorable mention for Roberto Nelson, and honorable mention to the All-Defensive team for Eric Moreland.

Guards Jahii Carson from Arizona St and Shabazz Muhammad from UCLA were named Pac-12 Co-Freshman of the Year. Colorado junior forward André Roberson is the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year, and Stanford junior forward Dwight Powell was chosen the Pac-12's Most Improved Player of the Year.

Crabbe was a popular pick by the editorial panel as POY as well, but Muhammad had come support as well.
