The Pac-12 announced gave out its postseason awards Monday and both Shaquielle McKissic and Tra Holder were honored.

Holder was named to the Pac-12 All-Freshman team. After battling with Kodi Justice for playing time early in the season, Holder took the reigns down the stretch in conference play showing marked improvement. After not making a shot in his first four Pac-12 games, Holder finished his last 14 games strong averaging 10.1 points per contest while shooting 75.6 percent from the free throw line. He also assisted on 68 baskets over that stretch while only turning the ball over 41 times.

Jahii Carson, Trent Lockett and James Harden are the three other freshmen under Sendek to be named to the All-Freshman team. Holder finished the regular season averaging 7.2 points, 3.5 assists and 2 rebounds per game.

McKissic meanwhile was named an All-Pac-12 honorable mention. As a sixth year senior, granted an extra year of eligibility because of hardship, McKissic led the Sun Devils with 11.5 points per game while shooting 44 percent from the field.

The Sun Devils season isn't over yet. They'll play USC Wednesday in the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament in Las Vegas. Las Vegas sports book Bovada has ASU at 33/1 odds to win the Pac-12 Tournament.
