The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) announced the NABC Division I All-District teams and All-District coaches for 2015-16 today. Selected and voted on by member coaches of the NABC, these student-athletes and coaches represent the finest basketball players and coaches across America.  

West Coast Conference student-athletes once again dominated the District Nine list, accounting for five of 10 spots on the first (3/2) and second (2/5) teams. BYU’s Kyle Collinsworth, the 2015-16 West Coast Conference Player of the Year captured first team honors after collecting second team honors as a junior. Gonzaga placed a pair on the first team – Preseason National Player of the Year Kyle Wiltjer and All-American candidate Domantas Sabonis. 

Three-time All-WCC selection Stacy Davis represented Pepperdine on the second team for the second straight year, while Saint Mary’s sophomore guard Emmett Naar captured second team honors for the first time.

Randy Bennett, the 2015-16 WCC Coach of the Year, led Saint Mary’s on a record-setting season and was voted District 9 Coach of the Year by his peers. This is the second straight year a WCC coach has been selected as the district’s top coach. Gonzaga’s Mark Few was honored last season for the fourth time.
