The Pac-12 has announced its postseason mens' basketball awards, and the Oregon Ducks are well represented.

Head Coach Dana Altman was named Pac-12 Coach of the Year, becoming only the third UO coach to earn such honors. Oregon was picked to finish seventh in the conference in the preseason media poll, but had a chance to clinch the conference crown on the final weekend, ultimately finishing third. Altman has now won five coach of the year awards in four different conferences, having previously won the award at Marshall, Kansas State, and Creighton.

E.J. Singler was named First Team All Pac-12, the only UO player on the all-conference teams. Singler's stats were down from a performance that saw him earn second team honors a season ago, but still averaged 11.5 points and three assists per contest.

Arsalan Kazemi was placed on the All-Defensive team, and Damyean Dotson on the All-Freshmen team. Kazemi was also Honorable Mention All-Conference.
