On Monday the Pac-12 announced its 2012 all-conference team and six UCLA players earned mention on one of three teams. The selection of six UCLA players was a conference leader.
All-American Patrick Cantlay headlined the list for the Bruins, earning first-team honors for the second straight year. Cantlay leads the team with a 71.0 scoring average and is seven under par through 22 rounds this season.
On the second team were senior Alex Shi Yup Kim and juniors Pedro Figueiredo and Pontus Widegren. Figueiredo won his first tournament this season and ranks second on the team with a 71.6 scoring average, Kim ranks third on the team with an average of 72.3 and Widegren has an average of 72.5 with 10 rounds under par.

Figueiredo was a second-team selection in 2010, his freshman year.
Sophomore Anton Arboleda and junior Mario Clemens were recognized for the first time on the honorable mention list. Arboleda, who tied for 13th at the 2012 conference championship, averaged 72.5 in 2012. Clemens won his second career college tournament -- the Snowman Getaway -- in February.
