Boise State junior Chandler Hutchison has been named first team All-Mountain West by the conference’s 11 coaches, the Mountain West announced Tuesday.

Hutchison also was one of 11 players named to the USBWA All-District VIII team Tuesday, and was named second team All-Mountain West by the media Sunday.

Sophomore guard Paris Austin earned honorable mention honors from Mountain West coaches.

Hutchison, a 6-foot-7 guard from Mission Viejo, Calif., leads Boise State (19-10, 12-6 MW) in scoring (17.2 ppg) and rebounding (8 rpg). His 16.9 points and 7.8 rebounds per game in MW games ranked fifth and sixth, respectively, in the league.

Colorado State’s Gian Clavell and Larry Eustachy won the Mountain West Player of the Year and Coach of the Year awards, respectively.

Hutchison’s selection marks the third straight year a Boise State player has been named first team All-Mountain West by the coaches. James Webb III earned first-team honors after the 2015-16 season, while Derrick Marks and Webb III earned honors after 2014-15.

Fourth-seeded Boise State opens Mountain West Tournament play in the quarterfinals Thursday against No. 6 San Diego State or No. 11 UNLV. Those two teams play at 5 p.m. Wednesday, and the Boise State game is scheduled for 9:30 p.m. Thursday at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.
