I was gearing up to make the case for Dominique Jones being on the All-Big East first team, figuring they wouldn't be announced for a few days. Instead, the Big East announced the teams this morning and DoJo made the list. He's the second USF player ever named to the All-Big East first team. The first was Kentrell Gransberry two years ago.
One of the six players on the All-Big East first team will be named conference player of the year on Tuesday. Scottie Reynolds was the only unanimous selection to the first team, so he's probably the favorite for that award.
ALL-BIG EAST FIRST TEAM
Greg Monroe, Georgetown, C, So., 6-11, 247, New Orleans, La.
Luke Harangody, Notre Dame, F, Sr., 6-8, 255, Schererville, Ind.
Dominique Jones, USF, G, Jr., 6-4, 205, Lake Wales, Fla.
Wes Johnson, Syracuse, F, Jr., 6-7, 205, Corsicana, Texas
Scottie Reynolds, Villanova, G, Sr., 6-2, 190, Herndon, Va.
Da’Sean Butler, West Virginia, F, Sr., 6-7, 225, Newark, N.J.
P.S. I think Lazar Hayward got screwed.
