USF PG Anthony Collins was honored today with a spot on the All-Big East Rookie Team. Collins averaged 8.0 points, 5.3 assists, 1.9 rebounds, and 1.6 steals a game for the Bulls, and was one of the big surprises in the conference this season. His poise and ability to run the offense was a huge reason why USF is on the verge of making their first NCAA trip in 20 seasons.

Collins is the first USF player to make the All-Big East Rookie Team since Dominique Jones in 2007-08. Let's hope this means Collins will have the sort of career DoJo had while in Tampa.

USF was not represented in any of the three All-Big East teams. Individual awards will be handed out on Monday and Tuesday.

The full seven player All-Big East Rookie Team is below. The team was voted on by coaches, but they couldn't vote for anyone on their own team.
