My All Big Ten Conference Teams

Published on November 4, 2011 by Scott Shirley   ·   5 Comments

College basketball is right around the corner. Games will be starting in a week or so. College basketball might be the only game in town, which will give even more attention to the college game. I can’t wait for this upcoming season.

In the next few days I will be releasing my all conference teams for the power six conferences.  I already released my all Big East and ACC teams. Now here is my all Big Ten teams.

1st Team

F Jared Sullinger, Ohio State (17.2ppg) (6-9/280, Soph.) – One of the most dominant players in all of college basketball last year as a freshman. He recorded a double double in 34 of the 37 games last season. Also shot 54 % from the field.

G Jordan Taylor, Wisconsin (18.1 ppg) (6-1/195, Sr.) – One word to describe Taylor’s game is complete. He was on all the Big Ten defensive team while being the 5th leading scorer in the conference. His 3.83 to 1 is one of the best assist to turnover ratios in college basketball history. He also shot 43 % from three.

F John Shurna, Northwestern (16.6 ppg) (6-9/215, Sr.) – Would have put up better numbers last season if it weren’t for an injury. Shurna does it all for the Wildcats. He averaged 4.9 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.1 steals and 1 block. He is on pace to become NU all time leading scorer.

F Trevor Mbakwe, Minnesota (13.9 ppg) (6-8/245, Sr.) – He led the Big Ten in rebounding last year averaging 10.5 rebounds per game. His offensive game is just coming into his own. His field goal percentage last season was nearly 60%.

F Draymond Green, Michigan State (12.6 ppg) (6-7/230, Sr.) – Is a unique big man, who led his team in assists (4.1) and rebounds (8.6) last season. He also had 1.8 steals and 1.1 blocks. Expect some triple doubles this season.

2nd Team

G William Buford, Ohio State (14.6 ppg) (6-6/220, Sr.) – Buford is a deadly shooter that shot 44% from beyond on the arch last season. Also averaged 2.9 assists per game. Needs to attack the rim more.

G Tim Hardaway ,Michigan (13.9 ppg) (6-5/185, So.)- Is the son of former NBA star Tim Hardaway. He really came on late last season, and was Michigan’s leading scorer in Big Ten play. Excels at attacking the rim and mid range game.

F Robbie Hummel, Purdue (15.7 ppg) (6-8/215, Sr.) – Is returning from 2 ACL injuries. In 2009-10 his last season; he averaged 15. 7 points per game and 6.9 rebounds per game. Made the 1st all Big Ten teams in 2008 and 2009.

F Christian Watford, Indiana (16 ppg) (6-9/230, Jr.) – Waford was the 10-leading scorer in the Big Ten last season on a bad Indiana team. Also averaged 5.4 rebounds. Was second in the Big Ten in free throw percentage. Should put up even better numbers on a better Indiana team.

F Ralph Sampson III, Minnesota (10.2 ppg) (6-11/241, Sr.)- Is the son of former all American Ralph Sampson. Also averaged 5.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 2 blocks last season.

3rd Team

G Aaron Craft, Ohio State (6.9 ppg) (6-2/195, Soph.) – Was the Big Ten sixth man of the year, last season as a freshman. Didn’t score much, but he was 5th in the Big ten in assists (4.8) and 1st in the conference in steals (2).

G Brandon Paul, Illinois (9 ppg) (6-4/200, Jr.) – His numbers should go up a lot with Illinois losing a lot of key players. He also averaged 3.1 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 1.1 steals.

G Matt Gatens, Iowa (12.6 ppg) (6-5/212, Sr.) – Gatens has averaged double figures in points last season while improving his all around offensive game. Also is one of the best free throw shooters in the country.

G Zach Novak, Michigan (8.9 ppg) (6-4/210,Sr.) – Is the unquestioned leader of this team. He also works hard on defense. Also averaged 5.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists. Novak also made 65 threes last season.

F Melsahn Basabe, Iowa (11 ppg) (6-7/225, Soph.) – Basabe was the only freshman in Iowa history to score more than 325 points, 200 rebounds, and 40 blocks in a season.
