WSU’s Rochestie first-team All-Pac-10


The Pac-10 awards are out (you can see the whole team here) and there are some surprises. Not among the bigger awards, with ASU’s James Harden as player of the year and UW’s Lorenzo Romar as the coach, but among the 10-man first team – and the honorable mention. On the plus side for WSU is Taylor Rochestie being named to the first team. The senior guard leads the Cougars in scoring and had that memorable game in Pauley Pavilion a couple of weeks ago. On the minus side, Aron Baynes, an honorable mention selection last year, didn’t earn that honor in this one. On the plus side, two WSU players – Klay Thompson, who was a lock, and DeAngelo Casto, a surprise – were named to the six-player All-Freshman team. On the minus, no Cougar earned all-defensive recognition, this from a team that led the conference in defense. The WSU pack must be exceptionally strong this season. We’ll have more later.
