DaVonte Lacy, G, Washington State
Lacy's name is one fairly unknown on the national scene, but he was outstanding this past season for what was otherwise a dreadful Washington State team.
It certainly wasn't an easy season for him. He missed two games after an appendectomy before suffering a rib injury that caused him to miss another six games. After those setbacks, he merely came back and averaged 21.3 points per contest over his final 11 games.
If he can stay healthy as a senior, he could lead the Pac-12 in scoring.
Norman Powell, G, UCLA
The Bruins don't have much returning from last season, but Powell has to be considered the team's primary veteran presence.
Powell only played 25.7 minutes per game on last year's loaded roster, but he'll be expected to be one of UCLA's leading scorers after averaging 11.4 points per game one season ago. Let's hope he goes easy on the three-point attempts, though. Powell has shot just 31.1 percent from downtown in his three seasons at UCLA.
Nigel Williams-Goss, G, Washington
In a year with Andrew Harrison, Tyler Ennis and Marcus Foster on the ballot, it just might be the relatively unheralded Williams-Goss who served as the best freshman point guard in the nation.
He averaged 13.4 points, 4.4 assists and 4.4 rebounds per game in his first year on the college circuit and has to be considered one of the primary candidates to record a triple-double at some point this season.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, F, Arizona
Easily the toughest omission from the first team, Hollis-Jefferson could very well be the leading scorer for a team that enters the NCAA tournament with 30 wins.
He clearly has the athleticism to pull it off, but does he have the killer instinct? No one stood to gain from Brandon Ashley's season-ending injury quite like Hollis-Jefferson, and he did little to capitalize on it. Over the last 16 games of last season, he averaged 28.4 minutes and just 10.8 points per game.
On what will once again be a stacked roster, will Hollis-Jefferson push the issue enough to make the first team?
Stanley Johnson, Arizona
We'll address Johnson later, as he is our selection for Pac-12 Freshman of the Year.
