This was an awfully tough year to select All-Big East honors.

Preseason Player of the Year Rty Hibbert may not have even deserved third team honors, but it's hard to justify leaving the conference champs without a representative.

After Harangody and Price (the second choice of most analysts for POY, but not the most impressive numbers), I could have ranked a lot of guys anywhere from 1st to 3rd team.

I know he's your POY, but you seem to have left LH off of your first team.

Rules for voting were one Player of the Year and three differnt teams of 5 (16 total players). One Freshman of the Year and two teams of 5 (11 total players).

Great news on the official front with Mac and Gody. Luke was one of four unanimous selections for first team.

As always, thanks for the comments and keep reading the blog!
