Taj Gibson is named Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year

As disappointing as the season was when compared to its expectations this is a litttle bit of a silver lining...

All season forward Taj Gibson and point guard Daniel Hackett were USC’s two best players. The Pac-10 coaches agreed, selecting Gibson as the conference defensive player of the year and him and Hacket to the all-conference second team.

USC did not have a player named to the first team rubbing a little more salt in the wound.

Here is more of the various lists...
