Bouldin named WCC player of year

Gonzaga senior guard Matt Bouldin was named the WCC player of the year, the league announced Monday afternoon.

GU’s Elias Harris was selected freshman of the year and Mark Few was chosen coach of the year. Saint Mary’s center Omar Samhan was voted defensive player of the year.

Bouldin, Harris and Steven Gray were first-team All-WCC selections. Bouldin has been on the first team the last three seasons. The rest of the first team: Portland’s T.J. Campbell and Robin Smeulders; San Francisco’s Dior Lowhorn; Saint Mary’s Mickey McConnell and Samhan; and Loyola Marymount’s Vernon Teel and Drew Viney.

Bouldin, the versatile 6-5 guard from Highlands Ranch, Colo., is averaging a career-high 16 points and 4.1 assists per game this season.

Joining Harris on the All-freshman team: Saint Mary's Matthew Dellavedova, LMU's Ashley Hamilton, San Diego's Chris Manresa and Santa Clara's Robert Smith.
