Senior Kris Joseph from Montreal made the first-team as he led the 30-1 Orange with a 14.1 scoring average. Along with Joseph, the six-man first-team (duh) includes Marquette forward Jae Crowder, Marquette guard Darius Johnson-Odom, UConn's Jeremy Lamb, Georgetown's Jason Clark and West Virginia's Kevin Jones.
Senior Scoop Jardine made the second-team. His stats weren't all-world (8.6 points and 4.9 assists) but Scoop emerged as a true leader this year and did a lot for this team that isn't quantifiable. I don't know if these votes were because of that or he just got the votes because he's so visible, but either way it's deserved.
Finally, sophomore Dion Waiters made the third-team. You could probably make an argument that Dion and Scoop should have been in the other one's spot, especially with Dion's scoring average (11.9). However, his sixth-man status and the fact he did struggle down the stretch make it understandable.
No Syracuse players made the Honorable Mention list (Fab? C.J.?) and no Syracuse players made the All-Rookie Team (fair enough).
The Defensive POY, Sixth Man of the Year, Most Improved and Sportsmanship awards will be announced on Monday while Coach of the Year, Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year will be announced Tuesday during the Big East Tournament.
