Associated Press  |  Last updated March 04, 2012
Marquette seniors Jae Crowder and Darius Johnson-Odom are among the six players who have been chosen first-team All-Big East. Connecticut sophomore Jeremy Lamb, the only non-senior, was joined Sunday on the first team by Jason Clark of Georgetown, Kevin Jones of West Virginia and Kris Joseph of conference champion Syracuse. Crowder, who averaged 18.0 points and 8.3 rebounds in conference play, was the only unanimous pick in the voting by the league's coaches. Jones led the conference in scoring (19.0) and rebounding (10.9). He edged Johnson-Odom for the scoring title by one point. Seniors Scoop Jardine of Syracuse and Jordan Theodore were joined on the second team by juniors Jack Cooley of Notre Dame and Maalik Wayns of Villanova and sophomore Sean Kilpatrick of Cincinnati. The third team was seniors Henry Sims of Georgetown, Herb Pope of Seton Hall and Darryl Bryant of West Virginia, junior Vincent Council of Providence and sophomore Dion Waiters of Syracuse. St. John's D'Angelo Harrison and Moe Harkless, the top two freshmen scorers in the conference, were joined on the seven-man all-rookie team by Andre Drummond of Connecticut, Chane Behanan of Louisville, Jerian Grant of Notre Dame, LaDontae Henton of Providence and Anthony Collins of South Florida. The league's player of the year, who will come from the first team, will be announced Tuesday, along with coach of the year and rookie of the year.
