KJ named All Big East First Team.
Congratulations to Kevin Jones as his selection to All Big East First Team was announced today. Here is the rest of the team:
Jeremy Lamb, Connecticut, G, So.,
Jason Clark, Georgetown, G, Sr.,
Jae Crowder, Marquette, F, Sr.,
Darius Johnson-Odom, Marquette, G, Sr.,
Kris Joseph, Syracuse, F, Sr.,
Kevin Jones, West Virginia, F, Sr.,
Truck Bryant was honored with a 3rd team selection. Kilicli did not receive honors and none of the freshman made the all-rookie team which consisted of 7 players. Additionally, one player was a unanimous selection to the All BE 1st Team and it was not Kevin Jones. It was Jae Crowder of Marquette. I would agree that Crowder deserves the recognition and in my opinion is more deserving of consideration for POY than his teammate, yet many consider Johnson-Odom to be the leading candidate from Marquette. These votes come directly from the coaches in the league and coaches are not allowed to vote for their own players. Obviously, at least one coach in this league decided that Kevin Jones deserved to be punished because he disagrees with the actions of West Virginia University regarding the conference. I'd like to know who the petty scumbag is and hear him defend not honoring KJ as at least one of the top 5 players in the conference.
