The Arizona Wildcats were led this season by two players in Kyle Fogg and Solomon Hill. While others certainly contributed, seldom did the UA win without a big performance from both players. After a long, tough season of countless practices and games , Fogg, a senior guard, and Hill, a junior forward, were named to the All-Conference team for the Pac-12. Jesse Perry was also listed as an honorable mention.

The Wildcats were just one of three teams (California, Washington) to have two players selected for first team honors. Jorge Gutierrez of Cal was named Player of the Year and Defensive POY, Tony Wroten of Washington was named Freshman of the Year, and Huskies head coach Lorenzo Romar took home the award for Coach of the Year. Brock Motum of Washington State won Most Improved Player.

Nick Johnson was named to the All-Freshman team, as well. Neither Angelo Chol nor Josiah Turner received votes for the team.

Fortunately for the Wildcats, they will lose just Fogg among their players receiving an award or honor on Monday. Hill is expected to return for his senior season, as is Johnson for his sophomore year. Perry and Brendon Lavender are the other two primary seniors that will depart after this year.

No players from Arizona State were selected for the all-conference teams.
