New, 12 comments

Almost, just almost, the full sweep.

NCAA Basketball: Santa Clara at Gonzaga James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

As expected, the Gonzaga Bulldogs took the majority of the All-WCC honors, claiming four out of the five individual honors and placing the most players on the First Team.

With the first undefeated regular season in program history complete and Gonzaga currently in line for the top overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, Corey Kispert was named Player of the Year, Mark Few won Coach of the Year, Jalen Suggs arrived to Newcomer of the Year, and Andrew Nembhard was respected with Sixth Man of the Year. The only award the Zags did not win was Defensive Player of the Year, which went to BYU’s Matt Haarms.

In addition, Joel Ayayi, Drew Timme, and Oumar Ballo joined the party, earning First Team and Freshman Team honors, respectively.
