    No way Pangos is All-WCC. He's a one dimensional player and is only a threat at home. A player on the All WCC team needs to be a force on the road as well as at home. Instead of Pangos you should have had Drew Viney on the All WCC team. He's a similar offensive threat to Noah Hartsock and was a big reason for their team winning tough games against St Mary's nad BYU on the road.

    As for the toughest player, that easily is Matthew Dellavedova of St Mary's. He's a dirtier version of John Stockton and because WCC officials protect him like he's on the endangered species list he gets away with it. I watched the St Marys vs Murray St Bracketbuster game and the refs in that game weren't from the Matthew Dellavedova Fan Club and it was interesting to see how poorly he and his team played without all that protection from the refs. Needless to say when they're treated like everyone else they don't look so good.

    Correction Gary Bell is a Junior, in that his dad was named Gary Bell also, but he's still a freshman.

    Dick, Gary Bell is not a Junior. He is a freshman.

    Hard to imagine that a league of smaller faith-based schools playing in band-box gymnasiums could have more NCAA Dance bids than the famed "League of Champions". The WCC is obviously the second best basketball conference after the MWC in the West.

    Dick, thanks for your very insightful and impartial All-Conference team.

    Go Gaels/Bulldogs/Cougars!

    Wow Dick, never thought I'd see the day where you'd take your "Blue and White" shades off!
