As for individual honors, Lorenzo Romar is the Pac-10's Coach of the Year, Isaiah Thomas its Freshman of the Year, Jon Brockman and Justin Dentmon First Team All-Pac-10, and Venoy Overton honorable mention All-Defense.
Honorable mention? Hogwash! Overton is a first-team All-Universe ballhawk. Nevertheless, it's good to see the team getting some respect. Hell, even the Old Grey Lady spilled some ink on this profile of Jon Brockman last week. The writer, Hugo Kugiya, clearly did his homework, noting the team's offensive rebounding prowess and high scoring, but if Jon Brockman's a small forward, I can beat Venoy Overton off the dribble.
