Allen Crabbe has been named Pac-12 Player of the Year.
Crabbe was joined on the All-Pac-12 First Team by Arizona State's Jahii Carson, UCLA's Shabazz Muhammad and Larry Drew II, Colroado's Spencer Dinwiddie and Andre Roberson, Arizona's Solomon Hill and Mark Lyons, Stanford's Dwight Powell and Oregon's E.J. Singler.
Roberson was also named Defensive Player of the Year, while Carson and Muhammad were named co-Freshman of the Year.
Shabazz Muhammad and Anthony Davis were voted by nearly 100 colleges as having the 'perceived dirtiest recruitment' over the past 10 years.
Muhammad received 15 percent of the vote, while Davis received 13 percent.
John Wall, Kyle Anderson and O.J. Mayo received seven percent apiece, followed by Derrick Rose at six percent.
“This deal was done for a long time," said one coach about Muhammad's situation with UCLA. "The other rumors and stuff were just smoke and mirrors. People on the inside knew this deal was done. I mean, he turned Kentucky down.”
Kentucky's ability to secure Davis also drew suspicions.
"I've never seen a recruitment get shut down as quickly as that one got shut down," said one coach. "I don't know how they did it. But it was a strong play."
Anderson committed to UCLA before Muhammad.
“A kid doesn't go across the country to a school that doesn't fit his style of play – and turn down some of the top East coast schools – without it being unfair," said a coach. "It doesn't make sense from a basketball standpoint.”
