Pac-12 Basketball Awards: Lorenzo Romar Named Coach Of The Year, Tony Wroten Freshman Of The Year

Lorenzo Romar hasn't had his strongest season. His Washington Huskies have been blown out on multiple occasions, his teams have been shoddy in their end-of-game execution, and the team performed poorly out-of-conference.

Despite all of that though, Romar's team finished first in the Pac-12, and he ended up winning his third Coach of the Year honor in the conference. Romar still remains one of the most accomplished coaches in the conference, and he isn't looking like he's going anywhere soon.

His super freshman Tony Wroten joined him. Wroten had big shoes to fill when Isaiah Thomas declared early, but Wroten did a yeoman's job in keeping Washington afloat despite freshman struggles.

Wroten and Terrence Ross both made the All Pac-12 First Team, with Wroten also making the All Pac-12 Freshman Team and center Aziz N'Diaye getting All Pac-12 Defensive Team honors.
