The Mountain West's best team, New Mexico, didn't have anyone post big numbers night in and out. Plus, the top six scorers in league play averaged within 2.7 points per game of one another.
So when the conference's player of the year is announced Monday afternoon, it will be anything but unanimous since there are multiple deserving candidates.
The all-conference and all-defensive teams will also be announced. Here's a look at some of the front-runners for the league's top individual honor, along with top candidates up for the handful of other awards.
PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Kendall Williams, New Mexico: As the most versatile player for the regular season champs, Williams has a good shot. He had 13.1 points and 5.3 assists per game in league play. Still, his numbers may not wow some voters.
Jamaal Franklin, San Diego State: Last season's player of the year is averaging 16.8 ppg (third) and 9.0 rebounds per game (second) in league play, but the Aztecs don't have the record they did in 2011-12.
Colton Iverson, Colorado State: The only player to average a double-double in league games (14.6 ppg, 10.4 rpg), he made 19 of his last 21 shots in the final week of play.
Anthony Drmic/Derrick Marks, Boise State: Drmic led the league in scoring in conference games with 18.8 ppg and in 20-point games (nine), but Marks' big improvement (16.5 ppg, 3.9 apg, strong defense) may take some votes away. Both should be first- or second-team all-conference, however.
COACH OF THE YEAR
It seems to be a two-horse race between Boise State's Leon Rice and New Mexico's Steve Alford. Rice took a team that won three league games last season to a possible NCAA at-large berth and a 9-7 league mark. Alford's squad went 13-3 in Mountain West play, two games better than anyone else.
Defensive player of the year: Wyoming's Leonard Washington seems to be the favorite. He is in the top four in league play in rebounds, steals and blocks. Marks is a likely all-defensive team pick.
Newcomer of the year: Iverson should take this in a landslide. The Minnesota transfer made the most of his one season in the Mountain West with his huge year for the Rams.
Freshman of the year: Again, a runaway winner is likely - UNLV's Anthony Bennett. A likely high lottery pick if he goes pro, the 6-foot-8, 240-pounder averaged 12.1 ppg, 7.2 rpg and shot 48.7 percent from the field in Mountain West games.
Sixth man of the year: Boise State's Mikey Thompson (7.9 ppg) is a nominee in a tight field. Other candidates include Colorado State's Daniel Bejarano (5.6 ppg, 4.9 rpg) and San Diego State's Winston Shepard (7.3 ppg, 4.1 rpg).
The conference also is expected to announce its honors for women's basketball Monday. Boise State senior post Lauren Lenhardt is a likely first-team pick. Regular season champion San Diego State's Chelsea Hopkins (top five in league games in scoring, rebounding, assists and steals) is a front-runner for player of the year.
