Conference play is over, so it is time to do my all conference teams for each conference.  Today I look at the Big East.  Find out who have been the best players in the Big East so far.   I will also give my player, coach and freshman of the year in the Big East.

Player of the Year: Kevin Jones (West Virginia)

Coach of the Year: Mike Brey(Notre Dame)

Freshman of the Year: Moe Harkless (St. Johns)

1st Team

F Kevin Jones, West Virginia ( Sr.)- Jones has taken his game to another level so far. He is averaging a double double on the season. He leads the Big East in points (20) and rebounding (11.2). Jones is also averaging 1 three and block per game.

G Jeremy Lamb, Connecticut (Soph.)- Lamb continues his hot play from last season into this season. He is averaging 17.6 points per game. He is also averaging 4.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists. Lamb is making 2.1 threes per game.

F Kris Joseph, Syracuse (Sr.) – Joseph leads the number two team in the country in scoring 14.1 points per game. Joseph is also averaging 5 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 1.4 steals. If Joseph played on any other team his numbers would be a lot higher.

G Darius Johnson-Odom, Marquette (Sr.) – He continues to be one of the most underrated players in the country. Odom is 2nd in the Big East in scoring (18.3). Odom also averages 3.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists. He is also making 2.3 threes per game while shooting 40 % from three.

F Jae Crowder, Marquette ( Sr.) – Crowder is an undersized forward who just can flat out play. So far this season he is averaging 17.6 points and 7.9 rebounds per game. Crowder also averages 2.4 steals and 2.1 assists.

2nd Team

G Maalik Wayns, Villanova (Jr.) – Villanova has been disappointing on the season but not Wayns. He is averaging 17.5 points, 4.6 assists , and 3.7 rebounds.

G Vincent Council, Providence (Jr.)- Last season Council led the Big East in assists, so far this season he is first in the league again with 7.5. Council can also score the ball. He is 10th in the Big East in scoring (16.2). He is also bringing down 4 rebounds.

F Jack Cooley, Notre Dame (Jr.) – Despite losing their top scorer the Irish are one of the best teams in the Big East, mainly because of the play of Cooley. He is averaging 12.5 points and 9.2 rebounds. He is shooting a crazy 62 % from the field.

3rd Team

F Cleveland Melvin, DePaul (Soph. )- There is no sophomore slump for the Big East Freshman of the Year last season. He is 4th in the Big East in scoring (17.4 ). Melvin is also averaging 7.3 rebounds on the season.
