Sophomores Kyle Anderson and Jordan Adams were both named to the First Team All Pac-12. Adams is the team’s leading scorer and seventh in the Pac-12 with with 17.5 points per game. Anderson leads the team in rebounds and was fourth in the conference with 8.7 rebounds per game.
Adams and junior Norman Powell were both named as Honorable Mentions for Pac-12 All-Defensive Team. Powell was third on the Bruins in both rebounds with 2.9 per game and steals with 1.3 per game. Adams was the conference’s top player in steals with 2.8.
First year guys, Bryce Alford and Zach LaVine, were both named to the Pac-12 All-Freshmen Team. LaViine has been a one of the most explosive players in the Pac-12 and has a career’s worth of highlights for this year alone. Alford has been an often reliable back-up to Anderson and has shown that he can hit the three on a consistent basis. Against Oregon, he had a career-high 31 points.
Again, congratulations! Now onto the Pac-12 tournament!
