Kyle Wiltjer and Domantas Sabonis were named to the 2015-16 All-WCC Men's Basketball First team. Eric McClellan was also named the WCC Defensive Player of the Year.

To close out the awards ceremony, Josh Perkins was named to the All-WCC Freshman team.

Gonzaga tends to dominate these awards, but this year was just not the year for it. The WCC Player of the Year went to Kyle Collinsworth of BYU, for obvious reasons. Junior guard Joe Rahon of Saint Mary's was named the Newcomer of the Year. Randy Bennett was named Coach of the Year.

All four individual awards and the teams are voted on by the league's 10 head coaches.

McClellan is the sixth Gonzaga player to be awarded Defensive Player of the Year since its debut in 1998-99. He is the second-consecutive Gonzaga player to win the award, following Gary Bell Jr. last season.
