Mountain West coaches select Boise State’s Webb, Thompson to all-conference teams

Boise State junior forward James Webb III and senior guard Mikey Thompson were named first- and third-team All-Mountain West on Tuesday in a vote by the conference’s coaches.

Webb and Thompson were named to the same teams in the media vote, released Sunday. It is the second consecutive first-team honor for Webb, and is Thompson’s first all-conference recognition. Webb leads the Broncos with 16.1 points and 9.8 rebounds per game in Mountain West games, while Thompson averaged 13.4 ppg. He is shooting 45.3 percent in Mountain West play after shooting 28.7 percent last year.

The coaches selected Fresno State guard Marvelle Harris as their player of the year, differing from the media poll, which selected Wyoming’s Josh Adams. San Diego State coach Steve Fisher was selected Coach of the Year. San Diego State guard Jeremy Hemsley was named Freshman of the Year, as the media picked Nevada’s Cameron Oliver. San Jose State’s Brandon Clarke was the Sixth Man of the Year, San Diego State’s Skylar Spencer was the Defensive Player of the Year and New Mexico’s Elijah Brown was the Newcomer of the Year.

Webb, Thompson and the Broncos open Mountain West Tournament play at 9:30 p.m. MT Thursday against Colorado State or San Jose State, who face off Wednesday.
