BOISE -- Montana's Sayeed Pridgett and Montana State's Harald Frey earned first-team all-Big Sky Conference honors, the league announced Tuesday.

Pridgett averaged 20.0 points, 6.9 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game against Big Sky opponents while shooting 51.1 percent from the field in helping the Grizzlies to the No. 3 seed in the conference tournament, which begins Wednesday. Frey averaged 16.2 points and 4.1 assists per game as the Bobcats secured the No. 5 seed for the conference tournament.

Mason Peatling of Eastern Washington was named the Big Sky Conference most valuable player after becoming the league's first player in three seasons to average a double-double in conference play with 18.5 points and 10.4 rebounds per game. The Melbourne, Australia native was sixth with 3.8 assists per game while ranking third with 1.7 blocks and a 56.3 shooting percentage during league play.

Guards Jonah Radebaugh of Northern Colorado and Holland Woods of Portland State round out the conference's first team. Peatling, Pridgett and Radebaugh were unanimous first-team selections, with Radebaugh also being named the defensive player of the year. Radebaugh is the first player in league history to be named the defensive player of the year three times.

Both Montana and Montana State had additional players recognized: Griz senior guard Kendal Manuel was voted to the all-conference second team and Bobcat sophomore forward Jubrile Belo was voted to the third team. Belo was also named the conference's newcomer of the year. Belo ranked second for the Bobcats in scoring during conference play behind Frey with 14.2 points while leading MSU with 7.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game.
