The Nevada Wolf Pack placed just two players on the Mountain West’s all-conference men’s basketball team on Monday.
Junior point guard Deonte Burton was named to third team and senior guard Malik Story was named honorable mention.
The league’s nine men’s head coaches, along with a select media panel, picked the All-Conference teams.
New Mexico head coach Steve Alford earned Coach of the Year honors while the Lobos’ Kendall Williams was selected as the Player of the Year.
UNLV teammates Khem Birch and Anthony Bennett garnered Defensive Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year while Colorado State teammates Colton Iverson and Daniel Bejarano were chosen as the Newcomer and Sixth Man of the Year.
Air Force’s Michael Lyons is the only three-time All-Mountain West honoree among the group, earning first-team accolades following third-team and second-team selections in 2010-11 and 2011-12.
Alford received his third coaching award after leading the Lobos to their fourth Mountain West regular-season crown. New Mexico amassed a 13-3 record in Conference play in 2012-13 and is the top seed in the conference tournament, which opens Tuesday night in Las Vegas (5 p.m.) with the play-in game between the Wolf Pack and Wyoming.
