Adrian Oliver led the WAC in scoring during the regular season with his 22.5 per game average and was the nation's fourth leading scorer among NCAA Division I players as of March 5. Eight times, he scored 30 or more points including a career-high 39 points in a January 21 win over Louisiana Tech.
The 6-foot-4 junior is just the second Spartan named a first-team All-WAC player since San Jose State joined the conference in 1996. In the Spartans' first season in the WAC, forward Olivier Saint-Jean was a first-team selection.
"It's an honor when any of our players are named to the all-conference team. We're very proud of Adrian's accomplishments this season. He absolutely deserved to be a first-team selection," said San Jose State coach George Nessman.
Nevada forward Luke Babbitt was named Player of the Year; Fresno State center, Greg Smith, Freshman of the Year; and Utah State coach Stew Morrill, Coach of the Year.
