Penn State's Talor Battle Collecting Postseason Awards

Capping a great career as a Nittany Lion, one many believe is the best in team history, Penn State guard Talor Battle has been earning awards and accolades to go with his impressive records. Just days ago, Battle was named a first-team All Big Ten selection by the media, and a second-team selection by the coaches.

Yesterday, Battle was named a first-team NABC All-District 7 selection by the National Association of Basketball Coaches. Joining the other usual suspects (JaJuan Johnson of Purdue and Jared Sullinger of Ohio State, among others), Battle has certainly earned the myriad accolades he is receiving:

Just the third player in NCAA Division I history to post at least 2,00 points, 600 rebounds and 500 assists and is the first Big Ten Player ever to reach 2,000 points, 500 rebounds and 500 assists, Battle stands 16th all-time in Big Ten career scoring with 2,119 points and is 20 shy of eclipsing the 56-year-old all-time scoring mark of 2,138 set by Jesse Arnelle in 1955. Battle is the first Lion ever to post three seasons of 500 points or more and his 593 points on the year rank as sixth-best season scoring total in Penn State history.
