The Pac-12 announced their All-Conference awards today, and three Stanford players earned recognition.
Oscar da Silva led the way with a First Team All-Pac-12 nod. The big man from Germany has stepped into a greater role in his junior season, and many had speculated he might be the conference’s most improved player, as well. His 16.1 points and 6.3 rebounds per game both lead the team, and his 58.4% shooting is 2nd in the conference and 18th nationally.
Bryce Wills earned a spot on the All-Defensive Team. He’s been the best defender on the nation’s 7th best opponent-adjusted defense, routinely being asked to guard the opposing team’s top player. Wills can comfortably defend 1 through 4, and has frustrated stars at each of those positions throughout the season.
Tyrell Terry is a member of this year’s superb All-Freshman Team. He also garnered an All-Pac-12 honorable mention. Terry’s play has been a revelation since the moment he stepped on campus. The point guard’s 14.9 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 3.2 assist averages are each good for second on the squad. His .446/.407/.896 shooting splits are perhaps the conference’s gaudiest.
One notable omission from the lists is Daejon Davis. Though he didn’t have the eye-grabbing stats, it’s hard to believe he wasn’t one of the 6 guards who received at least 3 votes for the All-Defensive Team.
