With WAC Vegas just three days away, it is time for the WAC Hoops Digest All-Conference Awards. And this year, we have given each staff member a chance to share who they would vote for. By no means does this represent what the actual Western Athletic Conference choices will be. If you have questions about choices, just shoot WAC Hoops Digest a tweet sharing your thoughts.
As you know by now, GCU and Utah Valley are regular season co-champions. New Mexico State is the 3-seed after a tumultuous start to the 2020-21 season. CBU, Seattle and UTRGV round out the rest of the field for WAC Vegas.
As you can see, the staff have a lot of similar selections. But, there are a few that are different. Darrion Trammell, Asbjørn Midtgaard and Fardaws Aimaq seem to be household names in these selections. Either way, check them out and let us know what you think.[table id=1 /] [ngg src=”galleries” ids=”4″ display=”basic_slideshow” arrows=”1″ interval=”2500″][table id=2 /] [ngg src=”galleries” ids=”7″ display=”basic_thumbnail” thumbnail_crop=”0″][table id=3 /] [table id=4 /]
Remember, WAC Vegas begins Wednesday with the women’s side of the bracket. Three games will take place beginning at 1 p.m. PST when 4-seed New Mexico State takes on 5-seed Seattle at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas. All games can be seen on ESPN+ with the tournament championship games on ESPN U.
The men get started on Thursday with 4th-seeded California Baptist taking on 5th-seeded Seattle at 4:30 p.m. PST. It is 3-seed New Mexico State and 6-seed UTRGV in the nightcap.
