Steve Novak: Unanimous All-Big East Selection

Congratulations to Steve Novak, a unanimous selection to the 2005-2006 all-Big East team. Novak joins Villanova guards Allen Ray and Randy Foye, as well as UConn forward Rudy Gay as unanimous selections to the squad. Those guys are in great company with Steve!

The other players selected to the Big East first team were: Mike Gansey and Kevin Pittsnogle of WVU, Eric Hicks of Cincinnati, Chris Quinn of Notre Dame, Aaron Gray of Pitt, Quincy Douby of Rutgers and Gerry McNamara of Syracuse (which I can't figure out .... he didn't deserve this slot).

The Big East POY will be announced on Tuesday .

Congratulations to Dominic James, a unanimous selection to the 2005-2006 Big East all-freshmen team. Jerel McNeal was also selected to the squad. Earlier today, James was selected as the conference's Rookie of the Week for the sixth time this season.

Devan Downey of Cincy and Wilson Chandler of DePaul were also unanimous selections. Joining James, Downey and Chandler on the 11-man all-freshman team are: Jeff Adrien of UConn, Sam Young of Pitt, McNeal, Sharaud Curry and Geoff McDermott of Providence, JR Inman and Anthony Farmer of Rutgers and Eric Devendorf of Syracuse.

The Big East ROY will be announced on Tuesday.
