As we approach 2020 everyone is looking to examine the decade as whole. Pac-12 scribe Jon Wilner announced his All-decade team today for Pac-12 hoops. WSU legend Klay Thompson is one of the first team guards according to Jon. Here is what he had to say about Klay.

Averaged 21.6 points his junior year on a team that won 22 games and lacked a top-tier secondary scorer.

Klay was joined on the first team by Jorge Gutierrez, Isaiah Thomas, Derrick Williams and Dillon Brooks. Williams was chosen as player of the decade.

Brock Motum, who was one of the final holdovers of the Bennett era, was named honorable mention all-decade as with 8 other players who didn’t make the first or second team. Motum led the Pac-12 in scoring from 2011-12. One caveat to this list is that the player must have made All-Conference twice in their career. So no one and done’s would would make the team.

Just another reminder of how good Cougar hoops fans had it in the Bennett era as two all-decade caliber players were left behind after Tony left in 2009.
