The Big West announced its annual awards on Monday and UC Irvine brought home plenty of hardware.

The Big West announced its annual awards on Monday and UC Irvine brought home plenty of hardware, but Alan Williams received top honors.

Williams was easily voted Big West Player of the Year, as he currently ranks 12th in the nation with 21.6 PPG and 1st in the nation with 11.6 RPG.  He currently has 15 double-doubles this season, and set career bests in scoring versus South Dakota State (39 points) and rebounds versus UC Davis (20 rebounds).

An interesting note about the all-conference lists: 15 of the 21 players listed still have at least one year of eligibility left.

Cal State Fullerton's Michael Williams, a transfer from University of San Francisco, won Newcomer of the Year.  The British freshman, Luke Nelson and Head Coach Russell Turner won Freshman of the Year and Coach of the Year for UC Irvine.

Here are all the Big West awards for 2014:

Player of the Year: Alan Williams, UC Santa Barbara

Newcomer of the Year: Michael Williams, Cal State Fullerton

Freshman of the Year: Luke Nelson, UC Irvine

Coach of the Year: Russell Turner, UC Irvine

First Team:

Mike Caffey, Long Beach State

Isaac Fotu, Hawaii

Stephen Maxwell, Cal State Northridge

Chris McNealy, UC Irvine

Christian Standhardinger, Hawaii

Alan Williams, UC Santa Barbara

Second Team:

Chris Eversley, Cal Poly

Corey Hawkins, UC Davis

Tyler Lamb, Long Beach State

Luke Nelson, UC Irvine

Michael Williams, Cal State Fullerton

Honorable Mention:

Michael Bryson, UC Santa Barbara

Will Davis II, UC Irvine

Josh Greene, Cal State Northridge

Alex Harris, Cal State Fullerton

Zalmico Harmon, UC Santa Barbara

Stephan Hicks, Cal State Northridge

Dan Jennings, Long Beach State

Taylor Johns, UC Riverside

Mamadou Ndiaye, UC Irvine

Alex Young, UC Irvine

One thing that's interesting to note: Ryan Sypkens of UC Davis is nowhere to be seen, despite setting a Big West record for career 3-point field goals.  After making the Big West All-Freshman team in 2010, and being an honorable mention last season, you would think he would get an honorable mention this season.  It looks like the record books will be good enough for him.
