Junior forward JayVaughn Pinkston, the Wildcats' leading rebounder at 6.1 per game, received second-team all-conference honors in voting by coaches. 'Nova's guard pair of junior Darrun Hilliard and sophomore Ryan Arcidiacono earned named honorable mention.
Freshman guard Josh Hart claimed a spot on the Big East all-rookie team, where he was joined by St. John's guard Rysheed Jordan, a former Vaux High star.
