I hate the All-Big East teams because they put 11 men on the first team. I realize they have 16 teams to choose and there will be howling over who is left off, but 11 on the team is ridiculous.

Aaron Gray made the 1st team as a unanimous selection. Levance Fields was selected to the second team.

*denotes unanimous selection

That’s just too many names. It’s at least 2 too many for the first team. Sumpter, Young and Hamilton were definitely not first teamers. You know they put too many slots out there when you look at the rookie group and see Hasheem Thabeet on the list.
