The Pac-12 released its postseason awards on Monday and both DaVonte Lacy and Josh Hawkinson were among the players receiving honors. Lacy was one of nine players named to the first-team All-Pac-12 list while Hawkinson was named the Most Improved Player while also receiving honorable mention All-Pac-12.
Lacy capped his senior season by scoring 17.2 points per game, the fourth-best mark in the conference. He's currently the No. 5 scorer in WSU history and set the career three-point record. Lacy also ranked highly in the Pac-12 in three pointers and free throws made. His honor was well deserved.
Hawkinson earning Most Improved Player is no surprise after he went from averaging 1.2 points and 1.6 rebounds per game as a freshman to 14.7 points and 10.8 rebounds per game. If the Pac-12 named actual first and second teams -- instead of 14 random players -- Hawkinson probably gets a better honor. Kevin Looney was the player taller than 6-foot-7 to make the list. Hawkinson led the conference in rebounds and recorded 19 double-doubles, the fifth-most in the conference.
Connor Halliday will not throw at Thursday's #WSU pro day. But says he will work out in front of media, fans, whoever in early April.
