Posted by Bob Condotta

The All-Pac-10 teams, as voted on by conference coaches, have been announced.

As expected, Kevin Love was Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year. Stanford's Trent Johnson was named Coach of the Year and UCLA's Russell Westbrook won honors as Defensive Player of the Year.

Washington's Jon Brockman was named to the All-Pac-10 Second Team and guard Venoy Overton was an honorable mention selection to the All-Freshman Team. Brockman was also an honorable mention selection on the All-Defensive Team.

Here are the teams:

ALL-PAC-10 FIRST TEAM
Ryan Anderson, Cal
James Harden, ASU
Brook Lopez, Stanford
Kevin Love, UCLA
O.J. Mayo, USC

SECOND TEAM
Jerryd Bayless, Arizona

Apparently your votes carry a lot of weight. Disregard your defensive picks and if I counted write your picks matched with 19 of 20.

Good assessment Bob.

Nice to see Overton made honorable mention for the freshmen, well deserved I think.

MT: you doing the brackets next week? I want every chance I can to bury a Republican with my picks!

I suddenly don't want Bob in the ESPN bracket picks! The fact that he got one team member wrong and the fact that he missed the fact that WSU scored twice in the last 6 minutes of Saturday's game should discount him!!! BTW, that was sarcasm.

"If I counted write your picks matched..."

Dumbest sentence I've ever written...I should have said I'm a democrat.

Correction:

"If I counted RIGHT, your picks matched..."

I'm not sure if I'll do the bracket or not, I'm debating. If Florida will count the picks then I'm in, I can't lose, right? (or is that, 'write'?)

Great idea though mattysimone, I'm impressed you went to that work.

Cougfan, if I do it I'm only picking teams from the red states.

Hilarious cartoon on the ESPN "Page 2" site today, parents commenting how cute their kid is when "all tucked in like a Pac-10 referee"

So let's get this straight

brook lopez, -18.9 pts, 8.2 reb, 2.4 to's, and 47% shooting, all of this with another decent 7 foot player on his team,

Jon Brockman -17.6 pts, 11.5 reb, 2.4 to's, and 53% shooting, all of this with no other post player on his team,

and the most telling stat in my mind

Brook Lopez -58 offensive rebounds, 2.76 a game
Jon Brockman -137 offensive rebounds 4.41 a game

and brockman's second team?

Brockman should be in over Mayo, and Bayless should certainly be in over Harden. Other than that I can't disagree much. I'm completely surprised that Westbrook won Defensive POY. Not to be too much of a homer, but c'mon:

Weaver: 1.7 steals, 0.6 blocks, 3.8 Def Reb, 1.9 fouls, 32.6 minutes per game.
Westbrook: 1.6 steals, 0.2 blocks, 2.0 Def Reb, 2.4 fouls, 33.6 minutes per game.

So in fewer minutes, Weaver stole more, blocked more, grabbed more defensive boards and fouled less often. All the while guarding the best player on the other team, ranging in versatility from defending small quick guys like Appleby and Bayless to taller guys like Anderson and Taj Gibson. I wouldn't have been too surprised if they had gone with someone more prolific at blocking like Brook Lopez or Jordan Hill, but Westbrook is just a silly choice.

Brockman not on the first team is as big a joke as the Pac-10 referees. And Weaver not being defensive player of the year is an even bigger joke. That guy shut down the best players on every team the Coug's played whether it was a power forward or point guard.

Bob,

Did you know about this list when you made your predictions or are you that good assessing? lol

The only one you missed was Jeff Pendergraph
