Panel Pac-10 Picks

On Monday, the Pac-10 office will announce the honorees for the men's basketball 2006-07 season: All-Conference, All-Freshman, Player of the Year, Freshman of the Year and Coach of the Year. We assembled a panel of nine experts and asked them to make their picks, finding unanimity in numerous selections. The freshmen class was supposedly the story of the Pac-10 this year - how did they fare?

A special thank you to our nine panelists, headlined by Scout.com and Long Beach Press-Telegram writer Frank Burlison, San Jose Mercury News writer Darren Sabedra, ESPN anchor Scott Reiss, Stanford radio broadcaster John Platz, CSTV broadcaster David Flemming.  Also participating: Mike Eubanks, Chris Jaenike, Scott Meinert and Ray Salloom.

All voters selected 10 All-Conference and five All-Freshman performers, as well as Player of the Year, Freshman of the Year and Coach of the Year.  Seven players were unanimous selections for All-Conference and four unanimous for All-Freshman.  There was unanimity in the Player of the Year and Coach of the Year voting, as well.

All honorees are listed with the number of votes they received in parentheses.
