2011-12 Mountain West Conference Basketball Team Announced

New, 2 comments

The Mountain West all-conference teams came out earlier today, and there are not too many surprises. The one somewhat shocking item is that Steve Fisher was coach of the year. I get the nod since the team lost a lot from last year and was not expected to do well, but I could see it going to Colorado State's Tim Miles who had an undefeated home record and knocked off some top teams all while losing their best player from last year.

Player of the Year: Jamaal Franklin, San Diego State
Defensive Player of the Year: JayDee Luster, Wyoming
Newcomer of the Year: Mike Moser, UNLV
Freshman of the Year: Kyan Anderson, TCU
Sixth Man of the Year: Amric Fields, TCU
Coach of the Year: Steve Fisher, San Diego State
