TCU guard Helena Sverritsdottir was selected as the Mountain West Conference Freshman of the Year by the league's coaches after averaging 9.3 points and 5.7 rebounds per game. She is the school's highest-scoring freshman since Sandora Irvin (10.8 points per game in 2001-02) and just its second Freshman of the Year. Jill Sutton was the 1998 WAC Pacific Division Freshman of the Year.
Despite finishing second in the league, TCU had no players selected to the All-MWC first team. Senior guard Adrianne Ross, who shared conference Player of the Year honors last season, made the second team, while senior forward Lorie Butler-Rayford was a third-team selection and Sverritsdottir was an honorable-mention choice.
Utah, which went 16-0 in league play to win the regular-season title, had two players on the first team: senior guard Leilani Mitchell and junior guard Morgan Warburton. Mitchell was voted the Player of the Year and Newcomer of the Year. Wyoming's Hanna Zavecz, the Defensive Player of the Year, joined them on the first team, along with UNLV senior forward Sequoia Holmes and New Mexico senior forward Dionne Marsh. Utah's Elaine Elliot was named Coach of the Year.
