Three Syracuse players named to All Big East teams

Three Syracuse players were named to All Big East teams on Sunday. CJ Fair and Michael Carter-Williams were selected to the All Big East Second Team, while Brandon Triche was named to the All Big East Third Team.

Georgetown sophomore forward Otto Porter Jr. was the only unanimous selection to the All-Big East first team, and will likely be named Big East Player of the Year when the award is announced on Monday. Porter finished the season second in scoring at 18.1 ppg, and his Hoyas were tied for a three-way share of the regular season title with Louisville and Marquette.
