The Bay Area was well represented in the West Coast Conference end of season honors. We break down the USF and Saint Mary's players who were honored.

The West Coast Conference wrapped up their 2011-12 season with Saint Mary's taking home the regular season conference title. This marked SMC's first outright conference title since 1989. The Gaels were led by junior guard Matthew Dellavedova who capped off a strong campaign by earning the school's seventh conference player of the year award.

Dellavedova was the second straight Gael to claim the award, following in the footsteps of senior guard Mickey McConnell last season. Dellavedova was third in scoring with 15.4 points per game and led the conference in assists with 6.5 per game. His strong play-making abilities made him a finalist for the Bob Cousy Award, given annually to the nation's top point guard.

Along with Dellavedova, senior forward Rob Jones was named to the all-conference team. Jones led the conference with 10.7 rebounds per game and was fifth in scoring with 14.8 points per game. Sophomore guard Stephen Holt was an honorable mention following a season in which he averaged 10.4 PPG, 4.7 RPG, 3.3 APG and 1.8 SPG. Brad Waldow was named to the All-Freshman team after he completed the season with 7.9 PPG and 4.4 RPG.

The University of San Francisco finished the season in fifth place, but saw several players honored. Senior forward Angelo Caloiaro was named first team all-conference, while junior forward Perris Blackwell and senior guard Rashad Green were both named honorable mention all-conference.

Caloiaro turned in the finest season of his career in 2011-12 and led the team in nearly every statistical category, including scoring (14.7), rebounding (6,1) and 3-point field goal percentage (.397). Blackwell earned his second straight honorable mention after averaging 12.7 points per game and 6.1 rebounds per game. Green also earned honors for the second straight season after averaging 11.7 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists.
