Pitt's Ashton Gibbs And Brad Wanamaker Named To All-Big East Basketball Team

Pitt's starting backcourt, guards Ashton Gibbs and Brad Wanamaker were both named to the All-Big East Conference basketball teams.

↵

Gibbs, Pitt's leading scorer averaging more than 16 points per game was the league's most accurate three-point shooter (hitting more than 46% of his shots). His 16.4 scoring average was sixth in the conference. He was named to the first team along with Kemba Walker (UConn), Marshon Brooks (Providence), Dwight Hardy (St. John's), Ben Hansbrough (Notre Dame), and Austin Freeman (Georgetown).

↵

Only one player was a unanimous choice - and surprisingly, it was Hansbrough, not Brooks or Walker, the league's two leading scorers. While it's conceivable for a coach to leave Brooks off the roster due to Providence's bad season, it's hard to imagine why Walker wasn't a unanimous choice.

↵

Wanamaker made the second team after averaging 12 points, five rebounds, and five assists per game.

↵

No West Virginia player made any of the three teams, but forward Kevin Jones did receive an honorable mention.

Here are the full rosters for teams.
