Media selects preseason 2023-24 Pac-12 Men’s Basketball All-Conference Teams

ARIZONA and USC led the way with a trio of selections on the 2023-24 Pac-12 Men’s Basketball preseason All-Conference Teams as selected by media who cover the league and revealed on Tuesday.

11 of the 15 First and Second Team selections will represent their programs at the league’s media day on Wednesday. The Pac-12 preseason media poll will be released on Wednesday morning.

Additionally, 11 of the 15 selections were voted either First Team (Ballo, Carlson, Dante, da Silva, Ellis), Second Team (Brooks Jr., Jones, Simpson), All-Freshman (Bona, Pope) or All-Defensive (Bona, Johnson) on the 2022-23 All-Conference Teams.

2023-24 Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Outlook

  • Pac-12 Men’s Basketball will welcome back five First Team All-Conference selections, the league’s most since 2007-08.
  • In addition, the league’s eight returning All-Conference performers and four returning All-Defensive Team selections are the most in the Pac-12 era, and most since 2010-11.
  • All totaled, the 14 returning All-Conference, All-Defensive and All-Freshman Team performers are the most in the Pac-12 era (13 entering 2022-23).
  • 2023 Pac-12 Freshman of the Year Adem Bona opted to return to UCLA, becoming only the third Freshman of the Year to return for a sophomore season in the Pac-12 era (Jahii Carson, ASU; Harrison Ingram, STAN).
  • Pac-12 programs combined to announce 37 incoming transfers for the upcoming 2023-24 season, 17 of which received either all-conference or national recognition at prior programs.
  • Pac-12 programs combined for nine top-50 signees, the most of any conference in the country.
  • Among the signees are six McDonald’s All-Americans, equaling the most of any league and the most ever for the Conference since the event’s inception in 1978.
  • In addition to the nationally ranked domestic signees, the Pac-12 landed some of the top available international recruits.
