Wyatt scored 30 in Sunday's regular-season finale win over nationally ranked Virginia Commonwealth, the fifth time he had at least that many. The Owls, who are leaving the A-10 next season to join the football half of what used to be the Big East, got the third seed in the conference tourney. Following a first-round bye, they'll open against either Massachusetts or George Washington in Friday's 9 p.m. quarterfinal in Brooklyn. At 23-8 (11-5), having won their last seven, they might have already done enough to earn a sixth straight NCAA bid.
As a sophomore, Wyatt was the A-10's top Sixth Man.
"I think this is something that he'll really appreciate 10 years from now when he looks back on what a great season it was," said coach Fran Dunphy. "He's been our leader. There were times when he carried us. It's nice to see how far he's come in 4 years."
Joining him on the first team was La Salle's Ramon Galloway, who joins Steven Smith (2005, '06) and Rasul Butler (2001, '02) as the only Explorers to do so.
Wyatt's teammate, fifth-year graduate student T.J. DiLeo, son of Sixers' general manager Tony, made the All-Academic team.
VCU's Briante Weber was Defensive Player of the Year, Xavier's Semaj Christon was named Rookie of the Year.
St. Louis, which won the regular-season title, got both Coach of the Year (Jim Crews) and Sixth Man of the Year (Cody Ellis).
The other three first-teamers were Rotnei Clarke (Butler), Dwayne Evans (St. Louis) and Chaz Williams (Massachusetts). La Salle's Tyreek Duren made second team. St. Joe's Ronald Roberts made third team.
