The Pac-12 released its men’s basketball preseason All-Conference teams at its annual media day in San Francisco on Tuesday.
Preseason All-Conference teams were created based on votes from media members who cover the conference.
The University of Arizona was represented three times with freshman guard Nico Mannion being selected as the program’s only First Team member. Freshman guard Josh Green was placed on the Second Team and redshirt senior center Chase Jeter was placed on the Honorable Mention list.
Arizona State junior guard Remy Martin was voted to the First Team and was the program’s sole selection.
A top-15 national recruit, Mannion led Pinnacle high school to back-to-back Arizona state championships and received the Gatorade Arizona Player of the year.
Green, who was also a top-15 national recruit, led IMG Academy to the High School National Championship and was a Third Team USA Today All-USA selection.
Arizona’s redshirt senior, Jeter, was a First Team Academic All-Pac-12 selection after missing the 2017-18 season due to his transfer from Duke.
Martin averaged 13 points per game, 3.9 assists per game and recorded 66 steals last season.
Colorado and Washington led the Pac-12 in First Team selections, both with two.
