Julian Champagnie is now a part of that unique membership. The junior ahead grew to become simply the seventh St. John’s participant to be named to the Huge East’s first group in consecutive years Sunday.
Champagnie, averaging 18.9 factors, 6.6 rebounds, 1.9 steals and 1.2 blocks, was a preseason first-team choice, too. He’s joined on the primary group by Seton Corridor senior Jared Rhoden, Villanova’s Collin Gillespie, Connecticut duo Adama Sanogo and R.J. Cole, and Marquette’s Justin Lewis. The Participant of the Yr, introduced Wednesday earlier than the beginning of the Huge East Event on the Backyard, shall be a kind of six gamers. Gillespie was the lone unanimous choose.
The large shock was that regular-season champion Windfall didn’t have a participant chosen to the primary group. The Friars’ Jared Bynum and Nate Watson did make the second group. Additionally on the second group have been Villanova’s Justin Moore, Creighton’s Ryan Hawkins and DePaul’s Javon Freeman-Liberty. St. John’s sophomore level guard Posh Alexander was an honorable point out choice. Seeded seventh, St. John’s (16-14) opens the Huge East Event on Wednesday in opposition to No. 10 DePaul at 7 p.m.
