WCC Player of the Year

List of WCC Player of the Year winners

The West Coast Conference (WCC) has awarded WCC Player of the Year honors every season since 1952-53 (except for 1954). San Francisco’s Bill Cartwright is the only player to win the award three times (1977-79), though twelve players have won it twice. Gonzaga is the program with the most winners (nineteen), followed by Santa ClaraSan Francisco and Pepperdine (eleven each).

The conference, originally formed in 1952, has remained relatively steady in terms of membership and size throughout most its history. Since 1980 when Seattle left the conference, only two major changes have occurred: the addition of BYU in 2011 and the re-joining of Pacific in 2013. All ten member schools – which span across the states of California, Oregon, Utah & Washington – are private institutions with religious affiliations. See also: WCC Coach of the Year
